Eastertide: From Lilies to Hazelnuts

by The Rev. Br. Richard Edward Helmer, BSG

From the May Perspective,
the newsletter of Church of Our Saviour:

Tradition calls Eastertide the "Great Fifty Days of Easter," and many of our daily and Sunday scriptural readings are filled with images and stories of not just the Risen Christ, but the miracles of the early church and glimpses of what Jesus called "the Kingdom" or reign of God.

This past week at Church of Our Saviour, we celebrated Earth Day somewhat belatedly, as the secular recognition coincided with Eater Sunday this year. We heard Jesus' teaching about the lilies of the field:

"Consider the lilies, how they gorw: they neither toil nor spin; yet I tell you, even Solomon in all his glory was not clothed like one of thses. But if God so clothes the grass of the field, which is alive today and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, how much more will be clothe you--you of little faith." -- Luke 12:27-28
