CNN really loves going to church.
She loves the dresses, the music, the community…all of it.
And so, for Easter…for my daughter (and myself too I guess)…we went to church with friends.
CNN, BB and I headed for Westport to a pretty old church in the middle of midtown.
It is a very liberal spot. The people there are lovely.
I am not certain if this is our place or not, but I thought it would be ok for this morning.
I was right.
Again and again, I am in the right place at the right time for the message I needed to hear.
I didn’t like it, not at first. I thought, “I will not come here again.”
Then I began to listen, to think my response through…
It is the same response I have had to my yoga room these last few days.
I do not choose peace or quiet in my head so you can’t make me come in there, yoga room!
Then I started to listen…about the sadness and fear and weakness of Jesus on Good Friday.
I heard the “rule” repeated more in the bible than any other…words I really need right now…be not afraid.
If you can do this…if you can believe…and release your fear…all is well…
and all will be well.
Just show up…ready…open…ready to let go of your fear.
May you feel the power of your every blessing this Easter Sunday.
I hope to lay down my fear so I am available to receive all that awaits.
Come on then!
