|This year, Easter and Passover happen at the same time. One shared tradition between the two is the telling, and retelling, of sacred stories. And I am reminded of Avivah Zornberg’s interview on Kristia Tippet’s OnBeing radio show in 2011 about the Exodus, the journey. It is really brilliant and I encourage you to listen here.
Stories are important, and here at the IIIC, we have the privilege to hear the stories of many immigrant and refugee families, and to be part of their story. Each family we meet carries a cargo of stories, dreams and hopes for a new beginning.
Easter is all about new beginnings. May we all be renewed and inspired by that possibility.
Wishing you a happy Easter and Passover.
