worshipping at the dog park...

Reverse God and you get dog, right?
As a Quaker we believe that no day is more sacred than another, also that all people are equal (with varying degrees in belief in the divinity of Christ).  If you do the math on that one, you understand that Easter is not a big deal to many Quakers (well, not entirely true--we know the Christian tradition, we also live in the NOW, so some Quakers might find a lot of meaning in Easter, and there might be eggs and chocolate, but for many Quakers it is kind of just another Sunday, or First Day, because Quakers also renamed days of the week, but that is whole different story).

The scene at the dog park is frankly very equable and congenial.  Every person is so different, their dogs too, but there is such a friendly vibe to enjoy, talking amongst strangers and becoming friends as the dogs race around together.  Humans should spend more time with dogs, and humans and their dogs should spend more time playing together.

Sunday was a nice day and that is what we did….

I love watching dogs play in the sun. What a good way to spend a Sunday.

Sounds like a perfect "First Day".
