#BlogExodus: Hide

Any ideas I might have about today's #BlogExodus post are hiding from me.  Or perhaps I am hiding from them. 

Indeed, sometimes it can be easier to hide behind a “yes,” to agree, to acquiesce, to keep silent.  It can be much harder to step forward with a “no,” to disagree, to differ, to protest or resist. 

In this season of our freedom, may we each find the courage to escape from our narrow hiding places, to come forward confidently, to say what’s on our mind. 

Inspired by Ima on (and off) the Bima, this post is one in a series marking the days of the Jewish month of Nisan leading up to Passover, which begins at sundown on Friday, April 3, corresponding to 15 Nisan. If you want to play along, check out this year's #BlogExodus and #ExodusGram prompts.  This series of posts also is priming my heart, mind, and spirit to participate in a six-day summer writing seminar, Beyond Walls:  Spiritual Writing at Kenyon
