The way of the cross leads home — guest post from Ken Sehested

I can never too often encourage folks to connect with Ken Sehested’s http://www.prayerandpolitiks.org site, where justice oriented worship resources and reflections are posted every week of the year. You would also love his books In the Land of the Living and In the Land of the Willing. Earth Day resources can be found here. This is his simple Easter benediction, reminding us all to hold Easter close — not one day but all the year long.

May Easter’s affection
spawn many children
who know
despite the trouble
the toil
the rubble strewn soil
the way of the cross leads home.
