Experience God’s love through a new spirituality of the empty tomb. The empty tomb is the moment of all possibilities- death has already occurred, yet life continues. Informed by the readings from  lent to ascension, we will engage the practices of this spirituality: embrace  imperfection, reform our sense of time by beginning our day at sunset, allow one’s spirit to nourish and be nourished by others, be a witness to miracles, eat meals, speak boldly of love and mission and let nature, as God’s body,  speak to us.
