EASTER Reflections & Prayers
What does it mean to you to carry the Easter story with you everyday?
Two inspiring ideas and challenges from wise friends of Henri Nouwen continue to stir me.
The first one is this: WE HAVE TO KEEP ROLLING AWAY THE LARGE STONES THAT PREVENT PEOPLE FROM COMING OUT OF THEIR GRAVES.
Secondly: IT IS SUCH COMFORT TO KNOW THAT JESUS’ WOUNDS REMAIN VISIBLE IN HIS RISEN BODY. OUR WOUNDS ARE NOT TAKEN AWAY, BUT BECOME VISIBLE SOURCES OF HOPE FOR OTHERS.
I cannot help but dream of what it would look like should we become a people in the business of rolling away stones, of seeing each other’s wounds as pathways to hope!
Prayers for the Journey

“I talk to God off and on all day long. My prayers are like any conversation I would have with someone, they’re not eloquent or pretty. I figure he knows exactly what I truly feel so my prayers are more for me than for him. He doesn’t need me but boy do I need him. Prayer for me is the validation for me that my God is always there. He’s my constant, my refuge, my comforter, my protector, my confidante. He’s my everything.” -KATHY

Thank you for opening your heart and mind to these varied reflections about prayer. I think prayer is often dismissed as a passive, “nice” response to hardships and situations behind our control.
However, for me, prayer is much more. It is: communion, alignment, life changing and lifegiving as we open ourselves to the divine.
