Easter Posts

Over the next few days I will be posting about Easter. I am a religious/spiritual person and they will come from a place of faith and culture. As a person who appreciates all faiths it will be from a personal place and not one of condemning anyone. Our universal appreciation for love and community should bind us and bring us together. I am a follower of Jesus from a modern/liberal point of view. Thank you for your understanding.

Today Is Good Friday, Praise To You Lord Christ #goodfriday #episcopal #anglican

good-friday

Almighty God, we pray you graciously to behold this your family, for whom our Lord Jesus Christ was willing to be betrayed, and given into the hands of sinners, and to suffer death upon the cross; who now lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen….The Collect For Good Friday of The Episcopal Church

The message of Good Friday is good winning the day. Evil put in it’s place. It’s about sacrifice, love and grace. I think the message of this day is about a humility and heroism embodied by a man who showed by example how to live in the best way possible. I think Jesus is a superhero who never wore a cape but stood up for all people.
