Here is perhaps an overlooked blessing to come out of the crisis, she said. “We often focus so much on how bad everything is, and miss how much beautiful light is happening, how much love is happening, how much connection is happening that maybe wouldn’t have happened,” she said. “And God is in it all.”

The Episcopal diocese has ordained two priests and one deacon during the pandemic, with plans to ordain five more deacons this year. “It’s a sign of the Holy Spirit’s persistent faith in us that God calls a one like Kathy Boss and the others…,” Hirschfeld said. “It’s for such a time as this, Lent or not, that God is up to something good and hopeful.”
Leading up to this Easter, Boss has been thinking about how Jesus’ disciples must have felt after he was arrested and crucified. “This was not in any way the way they thought God was going to manifest in the world,” she said. “They’re devastated.”
When they see him again after the resurrection, she said, “It changes everything for the disciples. They have to just find a whole new way to think about the world.”
Boss hopes the same sort of transformation may lie ahead for our country and the world after the past year of pandemic, social injustice and economic hardship. “We’re rising up out of this stuff in a slow way, but now what? What do we do with this?” she asked. “We need to create some new ways of being in the world.”
Redemption is not easy, Boss said. “This is when the hard work begins, but this is when we begin to see the fruits,” she said.
That’s the real message of Easter, she said.
“It’s resurrection, it’s redemption, it’s salvation,” she said. “But salvation is also about how we then be in the world. How we shift how we think about the world, and how we be in the world knowing that.”
