UU Lent 2020 – Day 46 – Rejoice

We don’t live into our redemption very much, or get to win the fight over death. Jesus’ resurrection is a symbol and a promise that we are redeemed and that death’s dominion is not the final word. On Easter the Deep Magic breaks through. We proclaim and sing that love’s redeeming work is done — and then get back to that very work. – Sarah C Stewart

All my life through, the new sights of Nature made me rejoice like a child. – Marie Curie

I want to be thoroughly used up when I die, for the harder I work the more I live. I rejoice in life for its own sake. – George Bernard Shaw

Brave men rejoice in adversity, just as brave soldiers triumph in war. – Lucius Annaeus Seneca

Alleluia! by Jeanne Lloyd

UU Lent – Day 45 – Rejoice

“There is not one blade of grass, there is no color in this world that is not intended to make us rejoice.”  ― John Calvin

“This is a day of celebration!
Today, we are divorcing the past
and marrying the present.
Dance,
and you will find God
in every room.
Today, we are divorcing resentment
and marrying forgiveness.
Sing,
and God will find you
in every tune.
Today, we are divorcing indifference
and marrying love.
Drink, and play that tambourine
against your thighs.
We have so much celebrating to do!”  ― Kamand Kojouri

“Rejoice in small things and they will continue to grow”
― Slaven Vujic
