This week has been quite special in many ways. It has caused me to reflect upon what happened during this time 2,000 plus years ago!
It just so happened that Passover 2020 was on Wednesday this year, so we read the verses pertaining to Passover.
Last night, we had a Tenebrae service on youtube with our church body. Normally, we are involved in that service, but this year it was way scaled back!
We watched a selected part of Jesus of Nazareth. Tomorrow we will watch the last part!
Our biggest celebration with family each year is Easter. But this year, we will all be in our separate homes.
It is so surreal. I will have no photos of family events this time, because we won't have any.
BUT.... the truth remains, that Christ Rose from the grave! It was "uneventful" for many in the world who were not in the area of Israel. They didn't know. YET.
For those who were there, it was VERY eventful! The grave could NOT hold our Lord Jesus Christ.
He rose again bodily, conquering Sin and Death. What an amazing event in history that has set a different course for all of eternity!
I'm so thankful to know that Easter, no matter what happens socially or politically is a reality and truth that cannot be held back.
Happy Easter! HE IS RISEN!

I believe in the sun even when it's not shining. I believe in love even when I don't feel it. And I believe in God even when He is silent. (quote found on the wall of a concentration camp)
