We are Easter people always – people who know the power and transformation of the resurrection in our lives – and so these celebrations are not re-enactments as if experienced for the first time – but rather celebrations of the truths of our Christian story. Here are more thoughts for reflection from Desmond Tutu:
When you see people wronged or in pain,
In case all you can do is not enough
In case you cannot fix the fault
In case you cannot soothe the scarring
In case you cannot make it right.
What does matter if you do not make it right,
If our efforts do not move mountains?
It matters not at all,
It only matters that you push back the veil, to let your goodness shine through
It only matters that you live as I have made you
It only matters that you are made for me,
Made like me
Made for goodness
Help us to be generous with our time, love, energy and money.
