Artistic Afternoons: Listen to some Easter music. This may be all church-song and alleluia-y, or it may just be music that has felt like it speaks new life to old dead places, for you, in your story. Listen to it, and notice your body’s response. Do you want to sing along? Begin to move or even dance to the tune? Or is there something in you that feels dissonance with this music, even this Easter week? If you can, listen to the whole song, letting your body respond how it will. See if there are moments you can express lament or celebration in the midst of it—whatever matches the both/and of what is going on in your experience of the world. Let it be your prayer, this Easter Thursday.
