Easter is not just a day in the year – it’s a season. And it deserves to be celebrated vigorously. What if we took celebrating seriously this year? What could that look like?
Check out this quote from theologian NT Wright on living into the season of Easter. Let it inspire you to celebrate and practice resurrection this year like never before.
“We should make Easter a forty-day celebration. If Lent is that long, Easter should be at least that long. We should meet regularly for Easter parties. We should drink champagne at breakfast. We should renew baptismal vows with splashing water all over the place. And we should sing and dance and blow trumpets and put out banners in the streets. And we should invite the homeless people to parties and we should go around town doing random acts of generosity and celebration. We should be doing things which would make our sober and serious neighbors say, ‘What is the meaning of this outrageous party?'”
