Living, loving, breathing, walking Jesus, we breathe a sign of reliefthat you breathe again: a breath full of creative spirit; a breath full of daring new life; a breath fresh as the morning; and in the wonder we hold on to, and the questions we have, may we live into resurrection: your fresh gift breathing possibility through the world.

And in the spirit of new life, may we live; in the spirit rebirthing, we hope;in the spirit of transformation, may we believe; and as we have held our breath over the Holy Week story, holding as much wonder as hope, and voicing as many questions as voicing trust, and with as much doubt as we have longing, and with as much confusion as we dare be certain, today may we breathe again, and dance in the deepest possibility you breathe again in us alive, among us, between us, through us.
