“Consider Your Resurrections”

Resurrection is a process preceded by death of some sort.  Yet dying happens also in ways not  physical:  as in losing a profession or a long-held job; having a painful divorce; questioning one’s religion as no longer enriching; emotional pain becomes intolerable; recognizing effects of one’s low self-esteem, etc.  We all experience resurrection at various times, as do all parts of nature.  This Easter we will mull over these queries:

1) When part of your life died, how did you resurrect?

2) When have you died, yet rose again in a new way?

3) What have you learned from your dying and  resurrecting?

The “Haikus of Resurrection” below can help prepare us

for this service:

_______________________________________

Sun invites brightly

In earth each seed dies alone,

Smilingly reborn.

_______________________________________

New resurrection?

Not very flabbergasting.

Happens ev’ry spring.

_______________________________________

Does caterpillar

Die when butterfly unfolds?

Such change grooming birth!

_______________________________________

I’ve died many times.

Needed metamorphoses.

Next resurrection…?

_______________________________________

It’s said Jesus did.

He had nothing over us.

We all resurrect.

_______________________________________

Body dead or not,

Imagination holds Him.

That too’s a rising.
