Let the Eastertide Roll

In this season we are invited to celebrate the good news that Jesus is alive and is making all things new. This news is worthy of celebration beyond a two-hour church service.

There’s probably no better time to pray for the healing of the sick because the resurrection is a reminder that one day there will be no sick. There’s probably no better time to work for peace, because the resurrection is a reminder that one day there will be no war. There’s probably no better time to celebrate and feast, because the resurrection is a reminder that we are headed to a banquet.

Christians, like our Lord, are to live from the future. Our communities and individual lives point to what’s coming.

From the excellent article Feast! 3 Reminders for this Eastertide by Rich Villodas

Villodas argues that Easter is something we should continue to celebrate long after the Easter Sunday event. And the Church traditionally has continued the celebration, calling the season after Easter, Eastertide”.

Let the Eastertide roll.
