Prayer in Troubled Times: Easter—New Life After COVID?

How might we understand the pandemic in light of the meaning of Lent and Easter? How might Lent and Easter take on new meaning this year as a result of the pandemic? You are invited to join us for two 20-minute online worship services that will include spoken and sung prayers, scripture, poetry, and intercessions. There is no fee and no limit on number of participants.

Year after year, we Christians sing the glorious Easter hymns about life triumphing over death: Jesus rose from the grave, and we will rise to new life as he did. But Easter is not only about life after our one-time physical death. The Good News of Jesus’ resurrection is that love wins out over hatred and evil even in this present life. New life is born out of our negative experiences, out of the disappointments and pains of daily life. If we assimilate the meaning of Easter, how might we experience new life even in the midst of COVID?

This worship service will be posted on our YouTube channel on Sunday, April 11, at 7 p.m.

Facilitator: Delores Dufner, OSB
