Happy Eastertide all you wonderful Easter People!!
As we settle into the new rhythm of this time, and as we prepare ourselves for this time of discernment, Traci Smith thoughtfully offered a Spiritual Practices Guide for Eastertide -the 50 days between Easter and Pentecost.
Ideally, we would have begun Easter Sunday, but I think when you read through the first two weeks you could: do the first two sets of exercises together; just start today and go a week or so longer; start in the second week.
Discernment is not meant to be sped through. It is, by its very nature, an act of mindfulness and so feels foreign to the way most of us live our lives these days. But let us take some time to slow down, to reflect, to talk with each other A LOT and to pray even more as we start to consider where God is calling us, as we listen for the new song God is teaching us.
