Easter is approaching, which is the celebration of the most mysterious thing in our faith tradition. Christianity is based on the radical notion that God would choose to enter into the world. This choice to live, as we live, means accepting the consequences of life and death. Jesus dies, just as we will die.

I fell into a deep pit. I experienced twenty funerals the year I turned 25. As a newlywed my job forced me to live apart from my husband. I wanted to curl up and die. Tears were my constant companion. I had faith but it didn’t seem to touch my depression.
