We are grateful for signs of new life at Genesis:
It’s easy to affirm the spirituality of Providence when things are going well, when the sun is shining and the birds are singing. Detecting Providence in the desolate or liminal times takes practice and is supported by community; we have been tried and burnished this past year. So today we celebrate Easter’s joy, although still in pandemic. We affirm life, even as loved ones are ill and approaching the great transition. And we take each next step hopefully, even as the future is yet uncertain. In gratitude for this Genesis community, I wish you all an abundance of hope and healing as the Easter Season unfolds.
These past weeks I’ve had occasion to cover Genesis’ kitchen so our beloved Chef Jen could have a couple of days off. I delighted in harvesting tart cherries from the tree behind the Carriage House and incorporating them into Rainbow Chard, bacon and cherry pizzas, Chilled Persian Soup, and cooking them down for a sauce over vanilla ice cream.
