Penelope Hagan – Spring Equinox is the time of year when the days and nights are equal in length. We experience a balance between life and death as old leaves are cleared to prepare the soil for early plantings. At this time of year, we are both moving and still, doing and waiting, planning and dreaming.  Finding balance is about measuring up to requirements while staying flexible. How do you find excitement in the mundane? How do you balance duty with pleasure? How do you allow new beginnings to inform your routines? Let’s examine the concept of balance as an act of consciousness, noticing how joy and laughter can inform even the moments when we feel uncertain or bored.  Life often shows us not just how to hold still, but how to fall with grace. Worship Associate: Liz Graham
