Years of Hope

The Eastern Church (that I belonged to) will celebrate Easter this year at the beginning of May. The Occident is already in Eastertide. Says my friend David, the minister of the Presbyterian Community in Clarendon, VA, ressurection is a churchy word, while the Greek original word from the New Testament simply means rise up.

And David continues, Jonathan Kozol wrote a beautiful book entitled Ordinary Resurrections with the subtitle Children in the Years of Hope. He writes in reverent tones about the simple act of getting up and going to school in some of the most impoverished urban neighborhoods in America. Though you might find that description depressing, I found the stories he tells of the children he meets along the way simply inspiring.
