The talented people who brought us Christmas is Happening are back just in time for Easter with the wonderful Spring in Glass Houses. They’ve put together a beautiful and thought-provoking collection of art, music and writing to help you reflect as Easter approaches. Visit, explore, and reconsider the importance of Easter.
“Easter is simply the greatest festival those sleeping silent Christians have. It is the greatest wonder, the greatest reason to celebrate, the greatest excuse to let loose a loud whoop, to dance silly-senseless, to feast, drink wine, send a card, buy a tree, give a present, and the only true source of love and hope: “that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” Jesus of Nazareth was raised from the dead, conquering decay, disconnection, our heartaches and our body-pains. He is risen indeed. Easter is not abstract; we know it now even during this current cold climate. There is, in this world, uncountable grief and unanswerable suffering but we know Easter in it, right now through the meek fragility of faith. Yes, Easter makes it possible to have spring in our glasshouses. “
I particularly love this little film – beautiful images, beautiful words. It captures the celebration and future hope in the midst of the reality of life here and now.
