Darkness to light. Sin to redemption. Bondage to freedom. The Easter Vigil recounts stories from the Hebrew Scriptures of how God continually leads the Israelites to new life. The liturgy begins with story telling, moves through the renewal of baptismal vows, into the joy of the resurrection. This year Polina Belimova and Jeannine Otis and I have found new accounts of God’s redeeming love in poems and readings–come live into the ongoing drama of transformation.
