Risk Joy

Mary Oliver reminds us: “To live in this world you must be able to do three things: to love what is mortal, to hold it against your bones knowing your own life depends upon it, and, when the time comes to let it go, to let it go.” Living at all requires us to take a risk, loving demands our hearts be vulnerable. One message of Easter is about risking it all and finding life even so. We’ll consider what emerges when we are willing to risk.
