Easter Sunrise 2020

Thanks to the 5 women and one dog who got up “early on the first day of the week, while it was still dark” and “went to the tomb and saw that the stone had been removed from the entrance.” We encountered early morning runners, but no park police warning us away from the Falls Line in Malcolm X Park in D.C. So with iPhones for lyrics to “Christ Our Lord Is Risen Today,” sharing reading from John 20, my homemade Easter candle, a jug of water, an asperges of blooming broom, and Easter eggs dyed with red cabbage, we celebrated the incredible news we’d received, reflected on our times, recited our baptismal vows, got sprinkled, then cracked our Easter eggs together with joyous shouts of “He Is Risen! He Is Risen Indeed!” (All while mostly wearing our C-19 masks. What a season it has been!)
