Easter’s Complete Love

Easter’s Complete Love


Artist Jimpsie Ayres writes “…thinking about entering life with complete abandon and love. Inspired by this Japanese Christian blessing:

Go into the world with a daring and tender love. Go in peace. The world is waiting. And all that you do, do it for love, and in the name of Jesus Christ who is Lord.

Ayres’ image originally startled me – how do these patterns and overlays dovetail in with the Love that has bade us all welcome? Seeking an answer to my own question, at first I found consonance in the background colors and floral. But after sitting for awhile with this, it is the figure, in a gesture of eternal hospitality, that I will remember.

The Episcopal Café seeks to be an independent voice, reporting and reflecting on the Episcopal Church and the Anglican tradition.  The Café is not a platform of advocacy, but it does aim to tell the story of the church from the perspective of Progressive Christianity.  Our collective sympathy, as the Café, lies with the project of widening the circle of inclusion within the church and empowering all the baptized for the role to which they have been called as followers of Christ.

The opinions expressed at the Café are those of individual contributors, and, unless otherwise noted, should not be interpreted as official statements of a parish, diocese or other organization. The art and articles that appear here remain the property of their creators.
