As I prepare to publish the abundance of fine work for this issue, I feel the editorial message can best be expressed by the contributors themselves.

I value all of the posts but chose eight excerpts to include in this editorial. (Perhaps

an invitation to explore the whole issue.)


So, whether it’s March and 23 degrees, snow covering most of the ground  (David James)

or that earliest warm day… when you know spring has arrived  (Patricia Hope)

no one is beyond the reach of His love. (Mark Weinrich)


Body to wood, Wood to body  (Mykyta Ryzhykh)

One chose to ridicule, the other chose to believe… we have the same exact choice today.   (Evalina Flory)


Every soul who kneels to worship is another candle-glow.  (Ada Anne Ohnezeit)

And, when doubt calls a tune it can no longer play, (R.L. Appleby)

it’s hallelujah in my bones ! (Adesina Ajala)


Happy Easter!
