Happy Easter to all! Today we celebrate NEW LIFE! In midst of the struggles in our world, we can become overwhelmed by the darkness! Today is the day that we remember the end of the story! The end of the story is about life over death, hope over despair, generosity over greed, justice over injustice and peace over violence. All of this would be wishful thinking if we didn’t believe in the Resurrection of Christ. The Resurrection changes everything! We can never look at any situation as hopeless because the Resurrection reminds us that grace is everywhere. May we hold close to this Easter truth and allow ourselves to bring that light to all the world.
At Nativity, we see new life in many ways but at the Easter Vigil we will see new life in welcoming Kentrell to the waters of baptism. Kentrell Jr is the son of Kentrell and, grandson of Adrian and Barbara. He has made the decision that his year he wishes to be baptized and we are overjoyed! Kentrell, we thank you for choosing this community of Nativity to be baptized and know that you have our prayers and support as you begin your journey with Christ.
May this Easter be for all of us a moment of hope reminding us that Christ who is Risen makes all things new!
