Extending the Celebration of Easter: For the weeks leading up to Pentecost you will find a weekly challenge here to continue the Easter celebration, because according to the church calendar Easter lasts for 50 days not just 1 day.

Week 2 Challenge

Make it a point to spend some extra time in nature. The life-death cycle is apparent this time of year. Buds appear on the trees. Plants poke their first shoots out of the ground and say, “See, you just thought we were gone. We’re back!” Meditate on the part of creation that insists that life come back and beauty returns. Share this moment with your children, grandchildren, and friends.
