Eileen's Reflections

I just finished putting away my Easter decorations. I wanted to leave them out through the Easter Season, but when my grandson asked me for the second time, “Why haven’t you put away your Easter things?” I gave up explaining and put them away.

 

I had tried to tell him Easter Sunday begins the Easter Season. Easter Season lasts 50 days. It continues through Jesus’ ascension and onto Pentecost. 

 

During these 50 days, we retell the stories of Jesus’ first followers’ journeys. They traveled from grief caused by Jesus’ death through doubt, discouragement, hope and then on to excitement when they finally understood and believed Jesus was alive. Then, on the day of Pentecost, the Holy Spirit swept through them like a burning fire. They were strengthened to go out and share with others Jesus’ message of the Kingdom of God.

 

We often dress our sanctuaries in white and gold during this time as a reminder that the risen Christ is present in our own stories, in our life together, in the breaking of the bread, and in our broken world.

 

I tried to help him understand we’re in the Easter Season until Sunday, June 4.  Obviously, I wasn’t very successful in teaching my grandson about the Easter Season, but there is always next year.

 

Wishing you a blessed Easter Season!
