Easter Sunday message from Bishop Jarrell

The resurrection of Jesus has been called the crowning truth of the Christian faith. “If Christ is not risen,” said St. Paul, “Our faith is in vain.” The annual commemoration of the Lord’s Resurrection is a time for joyful celebration, for family gatherings and for springtime festivals. It is also a time for quiet reflection, for a prayer of thanksgiving to the God who made us, who loves us and who saves us. We pray: “Lord God, you displayed your power and love by raising Jesus from the dead and you promised the same saving gift to his followers. Increase our faith; instruct us in your ways; envelop us in your love that we may receive the gift that you gave to Jesus and join you and all of the saints in eternity.”
Happy Easter, everyone.
