In Matthew 12:40, when the scribes and Pharisees ask Jesus for a sign of his prophecies, he tells them about the sign of Jonah. He says, “For just as Jonah was three days and nights in the belly of the sea monster, so for three days and nights the Son of Man will be in the heart of the earth.” Jesus instructs us that resurrection is a process of transformation shaped by the nurturing power of the Earth. Whether you believe in bodily resurrection or a transformation of energy rooted to the earth, Easter is a time to celebrate a new Becoming from the creative spirit of the Earth. Join us as we commemorate the “heart of the Earth” with our Flower Communion ceremony.
