Living Easter


He Is Risen!

Is is Eastertide! Like Christmas, Christians get more than 1 day, we get 50! Now you’ve probably posted your slew of Easter pics on Facebook but now it’s time to live it!

I don’t have the margin to say much, this is an uber busy bit in the life and times of the Willits family but I wanted to share a couple links and encourage you to live your resurrection joy!

Here are a couple links to learn more about Eastertide and the Easter Octave. Two interesting aspect of the liturgical calendar that don’t get as much love as other parts.

From Dr. Mark Roberts over on Patheos, he usually has pretty solid and informative stuff.
Of course Wiki is also helpful. I haven’t read through it but i’m sure it’s informative.

I didn’t find a lot on the inter-webs about The Easter Octave. I’ve read a good bit about it over the past year and maybe I’ll post some more about it later, but essentially it includes Easter and the 7 days that follow; keep the party going! There is also a Christmas Octave.
Here is an article from Today’s Catholic News about it.
Wiki link that say a little but not much.



Live Resurrection!!!

Grace and peace





.:: RESURRECTION :: Eastertide


Welcome to Eastertide…

Eastertide is the time between Easter Sunday and Pentecost. Pretty much it’s suppose to be a party. Every Sunday is Easter Sunday during this time. I like that idea!

Now, i just blogged for 47 days straight, this is 48 — definitely a record! So i DO NOT plan on blogging everyday throughout Eastertide but i will post some reflections here and there.

Here are a couple video’s to think about as you embrace the resurrection / our risen Lord!

[ this first video was made by a friend of mine, Jeremy Cowart. It’s some modern day iconography, maybe even digital iconography but i love it! So take a look and remember HE IS RISEN! ]

[ i posted this second video last year right after Easter because that’s when it was first released. Now think what you want about Rob Bell but this video is solid and i think, inspiring. And in my opinion lacks controversy, i think. Remember, HE IS RISEN! ]
