This weekend is the most important in the Christian calendar. On Good Friday we remember Christ’s sacrifice for the salvation of souls and solemnly move through the weekend until Easter Sunday when we rejoice again for the Resurrection.

Secularly, we celebrate the awakening of spring with flowers, bunnies, vibrant colors, and sweet treats. Children anticipate a basket of surprises and families and friends gather around the table for a holiday dinner. All around, it is a joyful day.

Whatever this time means to you, may you be blessed with the hope of new life and opportunity. May the fresh air and sunshine warm your spirit and spark creativity and goodness within. And may the light of Christ shine in and through you.
