Today is Easter Sunday in the western Christian traditions. The Jewish holiday of Pesach, or Passover, continues today.
Love each other deeply and fully.
Remember the ways that I have loved you,
and demonstrate your love for others in those same ways.
~ Jesus (John 13:34 [The Voice])
We are often not the Easter People
that we should be,
living in the certain knowledge
of your great mercy and love.
Distracted by the world around us
we fail to hear your voice,
or hide when faith is challenged
as we wander off the path.
Forgive us, we pray;
restore the love that we first had,
a faith that can endure.
We will keep our eyes fixed on you, Lord,
and with you at our right hand
we shall not be shaken.
