I'm back after an extended vacation. I hope everyone who celebrated the Easter holiday had a nice weekend. Whether we look at the resurrection story of Christ as literal or metaphorical, we should all ponder the ways in which we can bring newness and resurrection into our own personal lives. It matters not what our religion is, we can all use a new beginning and a fresh start now and then. Sometimes we must rise up out of the tombs of the past and enter the light of the now.
