Dear Friends,

Happy Easter!

Those words seem more precious this year since we could not gather in-person last year.  We have been through so much in a little over a year.  Who could have foreseen what all would happen in our lives and our world?  As I wax nostalgic about Easters growing up, I reflect upon Daddy calling us to see the Easter Bunny running through the backyard with our shepherd Janey chasing him – we always just missed him!  Then, there was the mad hunt through the house, garage, and yards for our Easter Baskets filled and flowing over with goodies delicious!  We would gather and put on our Easter clothes – many years brand new – take pictures with our baskets out front and then scurry to church.  As we rode, we would see the blooming azaleas on Victory Drive on the way to FCC of Savannah where the sanctuary would be overflowing with people and the sweet smell of the numerous lilies wafting through the air would nearly cause you to sneeze or choke.  There were usually baptisms and the singing of the great hymns of faith in worship.  After church, we would usually go over to Grandmama’s and Granddaddy’s house for a delicious lunch and then fall into a stupor on the couch from a carb coma!  How precious those memories are!  How much I miss those days!  At the center of all the traditions, our love for one another and our faith.  I’m sure you have your own cherished memories and family traditions, but we live in a different place and time.  Our lives and our world have changed so much – many would add not for the better.  But then again, times are always changing and life will always be challenging. Remembering the message of Easter can sustain us with HOPE through all the changes and the challenges—even a Pandemic. Our love and our faith can remain at the center of our lives no matter what this life brings.  Henri Nouwen reminds us:

DAILY MEDITATION | MARCH 23, 2021

Hope at All Times

It is central in the biblical tradition that God’s love for his people should not be forgotten. It should remain with us in the present. When everything is dark, when we are surrounded by despairing voices, when we do not see any exits, then we can find salvation in a remembered love, a love that is not simply a wistful recollection of a bygone past, but a living force that sustains us in the present. Through memory, love transcends the limits of time and offers hope at any moment of our lives. God is always good and faithful. God delivers us from all the “tombs” of this world – which we many times create for ourselves.  Remember and rejoice.  Hope is present. Easter is here!
