Primitive religion is not believed, it is danced!

Arthur Darby Nock

Earth's crammed with heaven,
And every common bush afire with God;
And only he who sees takes off his shoes;
The rest sit round it and pluck blackberries.

Easter Is

“Jesus's resurrection is the beginning of God's new project not to snatch people away from earth to heaven but to colonize earth with the life of heaven.”
― N.T. Wright

Easter is
the end of a path to a tomb
the beginning of a path
to the whole world

Easter is death
Becoming life

God’s yes

Easter is surprise

Easter is flowers in bloom
Hearts becoming open

Easter is hope

Easter is the death of hate
and fear
and violence
as solutions to anything

Easter is the birth of love
And acceptance
And compassion
As the solutions to everything

Easter is unbelievable

And yet

Easter is
