A Hip Easter Reflection


Jesus was born to a great couple named Mary and Joe, taught us to live, died for all of us, came back in the greatest encore ever and went home to be with his awesome dad (he didn’t drop the mic though). We can’t forget that Easter is an eternal thing that is open to everyone. Oh did I mention Jesus loved us fiercely and expects us to love our neighbors without condition, no matter what.


A Call For Help


No person is an island. We live in communities where there are people with diverse backgrounds and experiences.

It’s important to reach out to those who might be suffering in one way or another. We have all been through stuff that has made us better so its important to share those experiences with others when they need a helping hand. When someone calls for help be open to answering their plea.

Mercy and kindness are awesome things but don’t stretch yourself too thin, you can’t please and help everyone. It’s important to do our part for one another. Karma in one tradition or another is real and the more good you put out there the more it will be returned.

The best way to have a good neighbor is to be a good neighbor.

Reconnecting With Others, Yourself


Generosity doesn’t have to mean giving over your treasure, it can be better than that. It means being open and available to spend time with others. Time is as much a currency as money.

Now, I am not saying you should give up your entire life to come to others needs, you can get taken for granted. What I am talking about here is spending quality time with the people in your lives.

Our schedules have us running full speed and there is not a lot of time to reconnect with family and friends. It used to be that before life got crazy we would visit with our neighbors on a front porch or go to the park and meet new people.

This also means being intentional about how you visit. Inviting people into your home is always fun or meeting them at a coffee shop or park. It’s amazing what being community can do for you. 

Finding time for visiting and in-person socialization would restore our connection to ourselves. We’ve allowed Facebook and other social media to be the place where we visit most. Making ourselves available and getting out is hard sometimes but if we do it we can rediscover what it is to be human and not a machine. 


If we Christians spent as much time looking for Christ and seeing to our neighbors as we do worrying about Satan and looking for demons, this world might be a different place.
