Today millions of Christians around the world will be celebrating Easter, the resurrection of Christ.
It is a season of new life. If you keep this day, may God bless you and fill you with faith and goodness.
And my Jewish friends are celebrating Passover. It is a time of remembering their freedom from slavery.
The term “Passover” comes from the night the angel of death “passed over” the people, sparing their lives. Did you know that?
I have a number of faiths represented here and I’m very glad you’re here!
By the way the cherry blossoms and tulips are in full bloom, and the earth is bursting with spring.
Peace to each one and great blessings.

To all those celebrating Easter today – Happy Easter!
And I have a number of Jewish friends so – Happy Passover!
May you be wonderfully blessed during this very special time of year.
And if you don’t celebrate either day, may you also be blessed this spring,
as we all behold the beauty of the earth reborn. May hope live in our hearts.
By the way, did you know that the Last Supper was actually a Passover Seder? It’s true!

Happy Easter everyone!
May you always have hope, live in the new beginnings,
and be embraced by the sun.

My faith tells me there is so much more to Easter than colored eggs, or cute bunnies,
instead, the dying and living again, atonement given.
And yet, we should hold onto our beauty,
our colors and traditions
the blending of our hearts,
making us so wonderfully
who we are.
