Any Moment

A thought for Tuesday of Holy Week:

The ancient Celts who adopted Christianity into their worldview had this belief that, with every birth Christ was also birthed into the world. In the inside of every human a bit of that redemptive possibility had taken root. We, in their theology, were not “original sin” carriers, but the bearers of “original possibility.”

So, too, they believed every moment could be an Easter moment, because redemption was inside everything…it just needed time and the right environment to blossom.

The Tuesday of Holy Week, as Spring cleaning continued, they turned their attention outside the house: hanging wreathes and garlands, pruning, and (where possible) planting or prepping to plant.

Easter was coming and it could arrive at any moment.

Quite literally.
