OK, I’m really not sure how Tamara Hill Murphy’s blog This Sacramental Life has flown under my radar screen for so long.

By searching Twitter for posts on Eastertide, I came across a Tweet by Tamara with a link to her blog and her entry and exhortation to #PracticeResurrection2015.  It is truly MUST READING for anyone wanting encouragement to celebrate the full 50 days of the Easter Season. 

In reflecting on Wendell Berry’s phrase “practice resurrection” and a passage by NT Wright in Surprised by Hope, Tamara writes about her resolve to celebrate Christ’s Resurrection throughout the 50 days of Eastertide and encourages us to join her!

For the next six weeks (from now until Pentecost), will you join me in feasting on Resurrection goodness in our everyday lives?  It can be as simple as a special candle you use for your meals during Eastertide or as elaborate as travelling across the world to meet new people.  Whatever it is, will you show us a picture and tell us a few words?   Plant spring flowers (maybe a new variety this year)?  Show us! Get up to see the sun rise on a Sunday morning?  Tell us about it! Take a new route to work (maybe taking more time than necessary in honor of the mad farmer)?  Share it!

Three steps to play along:

  1. Add something to your day that helps you practice resurrection. (one day or fifty days doesn’t matter)

  2. Take a picture and write a description in 1-50 words.

  3. Share it with me via an email, Facebook or hashtag it on Twitter or Instagram #practiceresurrection2015.  I’ll share some of your photo-stories with everyone here each week.

Also check out her Easter 2015 daybook posts.

UPDATE:   I’ve just discovered:  Tamara is a contributor to an excellent EASTERTIDE Devotional produced by Christ Church Austin.  I’m so excited to find this.  You can read it online, or download a PDF version.
