An Easter Commentary

To me Jesus was not a throne sort of guy. A man who spent his ministry in the streets taking care of the least of these was not about having a royal attitude. He spent a lot of time going against the establishment and bringing people together. He was a savior but he was also lover of people who were on the fringes and even the people who were non-religious too. In the world we live today we need less king and more every person.

On this Easter we celebrate a man who rose from the dead but before then He taught the world how to live and to love and that is something his believers have forgotten.

My life is about my wife of 17 years Laura, Cody our boy dog, family, friends and of course blogging. I work for Blood Assurance a regional blood bank. The Episcopal/Anglican Church is where I express my faith and St. Peter's parish is my community. Grace and peace to all!

  1. I jave spent the last three days driving up home (Ontario) from South Florida on the I75. I gave you a wave as I passed the exit for Chattanooga Tony. Anyway I listened to the BBC and NPR for most of the trip. Yes the news is grim from many parts of the world. Today I heard many mentions of the Pope’s speech and message and his plea for peace. I was reminded of how far we have come from that original message of love and forgiveness. It seems you were thinking he same. Thank you for this post.
