Easter Sunday Worship – April 1, 2018

  • buy modafinil online uk cheap CONSIDERING EASTER: 2018
    • Today is the first Sunday after the first full moon after the spring solstice (March 21st). Every Easter is. In 325 A.D., the Council of Nicea laid down only two rules for the placement of Easter on the calendar: Though it was linked to Passover by much of its symbolism, it was to be independent of the Jewish calendar and it was to have “worldwide” uniformity. Though most often more ritual and ceremony (and certainly more commercial attention) is given to Christmas celebrations, Easter is the highest Holy Day in the Christian community. What can Resurrection life mean to you?

    • The silence breaks into morning. That One Star lights the world. The lily springs to life and even Solomon …
    • Let it begin with singing and never end!
      Oh, angels, quit your lamenting! Oh, pilgrims, upon your knees in tearful prayer,
      Rise up and take your hearts and run!
    • We who were no people are named anew God’s people, for he who was no more is
      Forevermore.
