Local churches honor Good Friday, Easter

Good Friday is the time we remember the supreme demonstration of how much we matter to God; that Jesus cared so much that he laid down his life for us.

The Cathedral of Our Lady of Perpetual Help is hosting a Good Friday service tonight - along with Easter Mass Saturday and Sunday. The resurrection of Christ on Easter Sunday marks the Christian belief that Jesus rose from the dead. We are people filled with hope amidst confusion and discord.

God bless you and may you have a very fruitful and holy Good Friday.

The people should emulate the exemplary life of Jesus Christ full of love and sacrifice, the governor said in a message to Christians to commemorate Easter.

To a Christian, Easter Sunday means everything, when we celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ. God swallowed up death for us. However, some states observe Good Friday as state holiday like Connecticut, Texas, Delaware, Hawaii, Indiana, Tennessee, Florida, Kentucky, Louisiana, New Jersey, North Carolina, and North Dakota.

Here's Where To Find An Easter Egg Hunt On The South Lakefront
With a $20 pledge, registrants will receive an egg carton giving them an opportunity to collect a dozen eggs. Barfield Baptist Church, 1033 Barfield Church Road in Murfreesboro, will host an egg hunt from 2-4 p.m.

It also signifies happiness, new hope and reason to live because He (Jesus Christ) lives.

Despite living in times of unprecedented technological advances and material wealth, we continue to ask ourselves big questions about the ultimate meaning of our lives. "I know it sounds absurd, but please tell me who I am?"

The cleric emphasised that Jesus filled the gap between God and man at the cross as He took our sins upon Himself. The Bible speaks about the crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus but nowhere did it mention any celebration after He was raised. As it is lit, the priest says: "The light of Christ, rising in Glory, dispel the darkness of our hearts and minds".

Easter brings God Endless Blessings, Easter brings fresh love... We are reminded today that no one can ever put an end to the power of God's love and life.

This is called the Harrowing - when Jesus valiantly entered the pits of hell to retribute all the souls who have died since the beginning of the world. This is what Christ gave us at Easter, but he had to suffer and die first before he could offer us glory. Blessed Easter to you!
