Easter Vigil

At our Easter Vigil,
annually hosted in some church members’ home,
years ago, a golden retriever was a part of the service—
our hosts’ golden retriever, Lilly.
She loved the people
and particularly loved the matzah
used in communion celebration.

Lilly died.
And for several years,
there was no golden retriever participating.

This year, our golden pup was invited.
She loved the people
and particularly the matzah
used in communion celebration.

It was not the same.
But it was also not completely different either.
And there’s some resurrection truth to that
I’m still mulling over.

  1. Resurrection is indeed a many splendored reality, but let’s not get too carried away with discerning evidences.
