Born Again: Spring & Easter

Lord Christ,

In every generation there are wars and haters, broken places and broken people. 

But to every generation You offer an invitation, over and over again, a standing invitation, for transformation. (Sanctification is the churchy term, or getting saved in the Bible Belt.)

It’s so obvious in nature during the spring. The earth is reborn, both flora and fauna. 

Then comes Easter. In Your resurrection we see the possibility for our own rebirth.

You find us in our winter and offer a springtime.

We are transformed to be peacemakers, justice seekers, healers, listeners, lovers. 

To impact our families, workplaces and communities - pushing back against the broken places. 

Again this Easter, I hear the invitation. Accept my RSVP. Amen.
