ANN WEEMS, writer, speaker, liturgist, and workshop leader, is author of Searching for Shalom, Kneeling in Bethlehem, Family Faith Stories, Reaching for Rainbows: Resources for Creative Worship, and Psalms of Lament. Recalling Easter as a child, she says, "I remember the Easter egg hunts on green lawns and in our living room. I remember pastel dresses and patent leather shoes. I remember roast lamb with mint jelly. I remember the abundance of flowers and the overloaded Easter baskets. But most of all I remember the hot cross buns on Good Friday morning and going to church instead of school and the inevitable sermons on the last words of Jesus and wondering why, in the face of the cross and death, this day is called 'Good.'"
