Easter Sunday celebrated in Southland

Easter Sunday celebrated in Southland

Following the established tradition, the Easter services are performed at night: like ancient Israel that stayed awake on the night of exodus from Egypt, New Israel stays awake on the eve of the Resurrection of Christ.

According to recent studies about 80 percent of Americans are celebrating the Easter holiday and more than 50 percent of Americans are expected to attend Easter mass today. In other words, Easter Sunday is tied to the transitions of nature, so that the date moves from year to year.

Easter is primarily a time to reflect on Jesus' death, burial, and resurrection, but for many, Easter is like Christmas, it is celebrated as a combination of the secular and the sacred.

He said: "As the resurrection morning brought a day of joy and laughter back to the disciples, the future years shall be full of abundance in Nigeria and bring back our joy and celebration in our streets in the name of Jesus".

"Easter is a happy occasion and entire family celebrates it together".

Officials say the suspect in the attack on Paris police officers previously was flagged as an extremist. The nature of the incident and details about the attacker were not immediately clear.

"If Jesus is alive, it means that everything he said he was to do for you, he did them all", the clergyman noted.

Easter Sunday brings comfort that death does not get the final say, but Jesus does and that those who die in faith of Him one day will be in His presence, said Rev. Nathan Wendorf, pastor at St. PaulLutheranChurch in Harlingen. This means that we have to dedicate ourselves in service to Mother Ghana. "The objective of this rally is to tell the people of Kolkata about the resurrection of Christ".

Jean Shanley is retired from The Meadville Tribune where she was communities and society editor.

While we may feel unworthy of this love, he said, "Let us not be afraid". That connects with the church's view that every Sunday is a celebration of Easter. "Same power that raised Jesus Christ from the dead will raise our hopes and restore our dreams ... and may this Easter usher in a true genuine change in our leaders and the followers in Jesus mighty name".
