“As we are preoccupied with thoughts of war in Ukraine, the Covid-19 epidemic, and seemingly unending snow, it is easy to forget about Easter. I did that when I chose this Sunday for a service about Ukraine. But nature does not forget. We say in Winnipeg that the first sign of spring is a puddle. By that measure spring has already come.”
– Carolyn Garlich
