Christ Is Risen!!


Christ is Risen Indeed!! The ancient greeting is exchanged every Easter to celebrate the risen Christ.

We have a group of ladies who knit shawls to present to various people. They pray when they knit and the shawl passes that prayer along to the person who receives it. Today they surprised Father Rick with one for himself. He seemed to be very pleased.



The Eucharist was celebrated and received, our Music Ministry made a joyful noise, Eggs filled with candy were discovered by the children, and the service was followed by a pot luck brunch. We were fed body and soul. Christ is risen, He is risen indeed!

I sincerely wish everyone who reads this a very blessed Easter. Whether you are a believer or not, I pray your life be blessed this day and every day. Happy Easter!!

Here is a Slide Show of Today's Activity.

To everyone at Christ Church. Allelulia, Christ is risen indeed! May you all have a blessed Easter. Thank you so much for sending me the Easter pictures. It makes me homesick for everyone there. Give my love to everyone. I survived Holy Week and Easter. I had three services and two meals today and got home at 3 pm. Now I'm trying to do nothing. Peace to all, Susie Lindley

Good evening,
children responded to emails, I am very happy they managed to read the mail without my help, I think that they will do good to discover another way of life.
I saw the photos of a woman serving Easter service in your church, what is its role? I'm not sure the Catholic church would accept this kind of thing!

The women assisting in the service is a Deacon, or Deaconess. The Episcopal church has permitted the ordination of women as both Deacons and Priests.

No, the Catholic church does not permit women clergy and it is controversial even in some parts of the Anglican Communion.

The history of these things is interesting. Most of the things that Christians fight about would probably not have mattered to Jesus. He claimed that God loved everyone without exception, and that is still a controversial attitude.

I am glad that the email has begun. Susan's daughter and family went back to Missouri last evening. I hope they follow though.

Bill, thanks for the beautiful pictures both from around town and from our service Sunday. Good job! Your pictures of the flowers makes me want to load my dogs in the car and take more pictures of the area, although I am getting into taking pictures of birds and bird watching. My goal is to get some good pictures so I can specialize in painting birds.
Anyway, I am glad you share your talent on this blog and it is good to hear the feelings of a fellow Democrat (ref. the picture of the tattoo parlor). My email address is changing to dachsie1@cox.net for future sharing. Thanks, Denise Hunter
