The Metaphysical Dangers of Easter
There is a danger that exists for individuals who embrace a metaphysical approach to Bible interpretation. I, like many others, find great meaning in the Bible when I see in the Bible characters little bits of myself.  The beautiful Easter Story that is told by the gospel writers includes many characters and I find that many of them depict attributes and attitudes that I have.

Easter In The Garden - Video Message from Rev. Ric

The Wild Iris

Louise Gluck
At the end of my suffering
there was a door.
Hear me out: that which you call death
I remember.
Overhead, noises, branches of the pine shifting.
Then nothing. The weak sun
flickered over the dry surface.
It is terrible to survive
as consciousness
buried in the dark earth.
Then it was over: that which you fear, being
a soul and unable
to speak, ending abruptly, the stiff earth
bending a little. And what I took to be
birds darting in low shrubs.
You who do not remember
passage from the other world
I tell you I could speak again: whatever
returns from oblivion returns
to find a voice:
from the center of my life came
a great fountain, deep blue
shadows on azure seawater.


Louise Gluck 1943-
Poet Laureate of the United States, 2003-2004;
Special Bicentennial Consultant in Poetry, 2000

In 2004, Sarabande Books released her six-part poem “October” as a chapbook.

Glück has also published a collection of essays, Proofs and Theories: Essays on Poetry (Ecco Press, 1994), which won the PEN/Martha Albrand Award for Nonfiction. Her honors include the Bollingen Prize in Poetry, the Lannan Literary Award for Poetry, a Sara Teasdale Memorial Prize, the MIT Anniversary Medal and fellowships from the Guggenheim and Rockefeller Foundations, and from the National Endowment for the Arts.
