The story I love of spring is the story of #resurrection. It's a gift we all possess, and spring reminds us we can each be reborn in seasons, an opportunity to bloom again, to remake ourselves, to be new again. It's a powerful thing to acknowledge and honor.
I'm reminded on one of my early holiday #SaturdaySchool discussions in 2012 when I discussed MLK and resurrection - his life and afterlife have shown the power I'm speaking of, and he started the resurrection of himself before he died. He was a man, a preacher -then reborn, MLK.
MLK knew he was being reborn, and that is was starting before he died. He knew that he was leaving a life of being whoever he was before. He was reborn as a leader, a symbol, an icon, reborn to something far bigger than himself. He laid down who he was to become who was needed.
There are so many amazing examples of people who have completely resurrected themselves or were remade into someone, something else, someone new. We can all choose this, to let die who we do not want to be, to be reborn, remade, into who we want to be.
How can we not believe in this truly awesome power of resurrection?

We all used to be star dust.
