Easter brings spirit of renewal

(Continued)

But far more important than bunnies, eggs and baskets is the sacred nature of this holiday, which for Christians is the essence of life and hope. The risen Christ represents a future that is not a penalty for past misdeeds or a reward for good deeds, but a gift of love.

Easter brings with it a message of hope, of redemption and of a new life that is eternally worthwhile.

In churches all over our area and around the world, ministers, priests, pastors and other Christian clergy will in their Sunday sermons speak of Easter far more eloquently and knowledgeably than we have here. We recommend that you give them a listen.

And for those who celebrate Easter, and our Jewish friends who are observing Passover, we wish you the warmest of holiday wishes.
