“A STORY IS TOLD about E.B. White’s beloved wife, Katherine, a brilliant editor at the New Yorker, and how, in what turned out to be the last year of her life, she went ahead and gently placed daffodil bulbs in the ground in Maine in October and continued planning her garden. According to White, his wife was “calmly plotting the resurrection.” She knew she was sick. She knew she didn’t have long to live. But she did still had hope. And afraid or not, she was not afraid enough to resist planting.” (Rev. Sara Huisjen, “Ministry Matters”, April 2014 NUUS)
We remember and are grateful to Charles Bassett, a long time member of UUCE, for the daffodils pictured above that he planted outside our sanctuary.
UU minister Lynn Ungar writes, “Spring is a season which demands that we operate by faith…as the ability to see beyond what is immediately present, with the courage to trust in the possibility of new life.” On this Easter Sunday, we celebrate the promise of new life born in this season.
