Finding Resurrection in Nature

Tiny Try-It-Out: Finding Resurrection in Nature

Jesus is alive again! During the spring season, the earth is filled with signs of new life. As the buds appear and grass grows, we see elements of resurrection everywhere we look. This month’s Tiny Try-It-Out encourages you to explore God’s creation to look for signs of new life.

Pause, light a candle, & take 15 minutes for caring conversation and prayer.

Share: What were your high and low points today?
Read: Revelation 21:5. “…See, I am making all things new.”
Reflect: Spring is a time when we can spot signs of new life all over God’s Creation. What new thing is God making in you? It could be a new opportunity or relationship that is life-giving, a second chance, or even a sense of hopefulness in your heart.
Pray: “Dear God, you are always making things new, bringing life out of death, and giving hope to the hopeless. Help us to notice your creative work. Amen.”
Bless: Trace a cross on each other’s shoulder, hand, or head and say “[Name], you are a beloved child of God.”
