Spring is coming, birds and flowers are (slowly) waking up from hibernation. It seems that we humans, too, are rejuvenated. Darkness and all the bundling up slowly fades and we adopt a more active, more social and more joyful mode of life. We walked through Lent and now our souls are lifted up into new flourishing.
The natural and spiritual “parts” or our human project seem to walk hand in hand. This reminds me of many of the lessons I have learned during this spring at Stella Maris during the One Body in Christ – Youth Weekends. God created nature - or, in fact, the whole Universe (to give it a bit more grandeur), including us humans.
Advertisements tell us to strive to be more beautiful and more successful and to keep more busy. In fact, 90% of the people I know respond to the question “How are you?” with “Busy”.
