Lust for Spring

Reverend Amy Beltaine

May Day is celebrated on May 1, a time of celebrating Spring and exchanging flowers with neighbors and friends.  In earth-relating and deities-relating cultures of the N. Hemisphere, the themes of fertility, beauty, renewal, art and abundance were celebrated in festivals like Walpurgisnacht, Beltane and Floralia.  International Workers Day is May 1 as well.  How can we embrace the beauty and emergence around us while remembering the work that we must do.
