PUCC Easter Monday Devotion – Monday, April 2, 2018

 

 

 

And Jesus said to them, ‘Go into all the world and proclaim the good news to the whole creation.’ – Mark 16:15
Easter Encouragement for the Journey by Bret Myers
Remember that resurrection is more than mere resuscitation! It is life transformed!
It is faith in possibilities, when others are convinced of inevitability.
It is the courage to love others, when they don’t love you in return…
to show compassion, when others are heaping judgment…
to live by peace, when others are being violent…
to work for justice, when others are working for wealth…
to respond with gentleness, when others are reacting with rage…
and to trust that life, well-lived, even if short-lived, is preferable to longevity without virtue.
Don’t remain caterpillars when you can become butterflies!
Live beautifully! Birth goodness in all you think, say, and do!
For you are called to life abundant!
God’s blessings go with you now.
Prayer: Holy One, Lent and Holy Week are behind us now… but we are Easter people and the world is waiting for us. Launch us! Amen.
