Quote Of The Day

This is what God’s kingdom is like: a bunch of outcasts and oddballs gathered at a table, not because they are rich or worthy or good, but because they are hungry, because they said yes. And there’s always room for more.

Pictures Of Easter Sunday At St. Peter’s Episcopal Church in Chattanooga, TN #dioet #episcopal #anglican

 

It was a great Easter Sunday at St. Peter’s Episcopal Church. Celebrating the life of Jesus and how he changed the world is always special. It was a blessed time of being with my faith community.

Happy Easter, The Day Of Resurrection And Love #easter #episcopal #anglican

I celebrate Easter from a religious perspective. Today He (Jesus) is risen, He is risen indeed. This is a day when good overcomes bad. The sun is rising anew and there is a new day dawning. Hope is offered to a world that needs it. No matter how you celebrate Easter may it be a time of renewal and love that transcends all boundaries. May you all be blessed today.

Something About #Easter and #Sundays

Easter is something to be lived out daily. It means intentional devotion and being active in ones faith community. The whole Sunday’s coming thing is meaningless if one doesn’t practice what they believe the other six days of the week.

For those of other faith traditions being active and engaged in your communities can only make the world a better place.

A Note To Folks In The Jesus Fandom This Easter Sunday #easter

My fellow believers this is one weekend that you want to be on your best behavior not just in your Easter Sunday best. People from outside the Jesus fandom are watching and they are taking notes.

The Christmas Season Continues

In the Christian tradition the Christmas season is a period beginning on Christmas Day (December 25). In some churches (e.g. the Anglican Communion) the season continues until the day before the Epiphany, which is celebrated either on January 6 or on the Sunday between January 2 and 8… From Wikipedia

So if you keep your tree and other decorations up until the first part of January you are OK. Enjoy the season, all 12 days of it.

The Season Of Advent Begins Today

Today begins the Season Of Advent. It’s a time to prepare for the coming of the Christ child. Before Christmas it’s good to center one’s self spiritually and to focus on peace, hope and love. Come Lord Jesus.

All Saints Day 2016 – Remembering Those Who Have Gone Before. #allsaints

All Saints’ Day is a celebration of all Christian saints, particularly those who have no special feast days of their own, in many Roman Catholic, Anglican and Protestant churches. In many western churches it is annually held November 1 and in many eastern churches it is celebrated on the first Sunday after Pentecost.(From timeanddate.com)

I am grateful for all those who have inspired me to be the person I am who now are among the company of saints. On a day like this it is good to remember those people who sacrificed and gave their lives in the service of their creator and for people from all walks of life. God bless them for they are Holy and worthy.
