  2. Over the past several years I have been beset with intense Catholic Envy, especially around this time of year. We don’t really celebrate Easter in the church and it felt wrong. A large part of the christian world has the entire Lenten season and we have 30 minutes on Easter Sunday. As primary song leader, I decided that this year we are going to celebrate Palm Sunday. (I had considered setting up the stations of the cross in the primary room but decided that might be going a bit too far…!!) I have ordered palm fronds from the florist and next Sunday we are going to tell stories and sing songs about Jesus, throw our coats on the floor, wave palm fronds and celebrate the season! I have made it a personal project to bring Palm Sunday to our chapel. I wish weren’t alone in this (Quixotic?) endeavor….

  3. I believe in the actual resurrection of Christ, I love to hear about Lazarus, Jesus said to Mary I am the resurrection and the life, then he raised him from the dead.
    I would rather see more celebrations at Easter than all the effort that is put into pioneer treks! Go for it Bill and start some Easter traditions and pageantry in the church!

  4. Thank you, thank you, thank you Jared, Kritine, Zina, and Dan. Thank you for sharing the history, the traditions of other Christian faiths. Thank your for the vulnerability and intimacy shared.

    I am on my way home from a week-long visit to Utah. Last night I decided to attend Catholic Easter Mass. I woke up early to make it to a 7:30 service. I am glad I did. The chant-like music, the pageantry, the culmination of the mass with the Sacrament of the Lord’s Supper, left me with holy envy. i think perhaps the unfamiliarity of the familiar made me appreciate how Easter is celebrated by our Catholic brothers and sisters.
