Soundtrack for Eastertide

Dj mixer with headphones and synthesizer

This morning, my young son declared, “Happy Easter! Aren’t you glad it’s not just one day?” We have done our best to follow the Christian year in our household, but in the hustle and bustle, it is easy forget that we have something magnificent to celebrate – and not just for one day!

The Easter season (Eastertide) lasts for fifty days. We still have forty-six more days to go. There are still scars to be touched, fish to be caught, breakfast to be eaten, and an ascension to behold. Two of our contributors share their Eastertide soundtrack below. We hope you’ll enjoy these songs during the journey!
