Living Water: Easter Season

Easter Day is come and gone, so Easter’s over, right? Well, no. The season of Easter in the Christian year lasts from Easter Day until the Easter LilyDay of Pentecost, seven weeks later, a period of 50 days that begins at sundown the night before Easter. The Sunday before Pentecost (the seventh Sundy of Easter) is often celebrated as Ascension Sunday, though the 40 days of Jesus’ post-resurrection time on earth actually ends the Thursday before. color for the season is white representing the purity and new life available through the resurrection. During the Easter Season, Christians spend time reflecting on their response to the Resurrection as well as on their purpose, mission and calling as disciples of Jesus Christ. So, what’s your response to the resurrection?
