My thought exactly . My sister asked me last wee when was Easter? I laughed and said I really didn’t know…other than it was the first Sunday on or after the first full moon after the spring equinox. She laughed and asked.why I didn’t know?
Friends typically don’t spend too much time choosing dates on the calendar to “celebrate” the resurrection or the nativity, not because there is anything wrong with it… But the witness of Friends is unless Christ is born into our hearts each day in a newness of Life, why pick A day for such things when other Nativity is a daily event, not a one day celebration.
So to the resurrection, each day we walk with the Risen One… We share Incarnation with Him, He Lives more surely than we do…but One Day we will be like Him…so one day a year…or once a week…each day must be Resurrection Day in order for the calendar day set aside for it to mean anything.
For me at least when I do realize that this First Day is “Easter” on the calendar, I am grateful for Friends recognition that “Easter occurs each day.”
