Happy Easter!

I’m a little late in getting to this, so we’ll go ahead with what Peter had to say about it afterwards:

Peter proceeded to speak and said:
“You know what has happened all over Judea,
beginning in Galilee after the baptism
that John preached,
how God anointed Jesus of Nazareth
with the Holy Spirit and power.
He went about doing good
and healing all those oppressed by the devil,
for God was with him.
We are witnesses of all that he did
both in the country of the Jews and in Jerusalem.
They put him to death by hanging him on a tree.
This man God raised on the third day and granted that he be visible,
not to all the people, but to us,
the witnesses chosen by God in advance,
who ate and drank with him after he rose from the dead.
He commissioned us to preach to the people
and testify that he is the one appointed by God
as judge of the living and the dead.
To him all the prophets bear witness,
that everyone who believes in him
will receive forgiveness of sins through his name.”

Acts 10:34a, 37-43

To me, it is impossible to not be moved by this – as well the reading where Peter and “the apostle Jesus loved” run to the tomb and find it empty…still not knowing and still not sure, but you know they were running through their heads things from “they stole his body” to “didn’t he say he would rise again?” and in hope and fear wondering what was going to happen.

And as my pastor did this morning, I’ll ask all Christians reading: do you believe in the resurrection? Because if you don’t, then there’s no point in going to Church. That is the unique thing about the Christian faith…to have it make the least of sense, the resurrection must be believed. I do believe it, as it turns out.

God bless you all!

    Jen Psaki: “what we’re seeing from Republicans is an effort to politicize immigration reform.”

      Well, to be fair, all he did was engage in a premeditated shooting spree, probably trying to kill people (speculating) but not quite succeeding. It’s not as if he poses the same deadly threat to society as someone being invited into the Capitol building while others were rioting.

    So just an observation but a good reason why I struggle to take this country seriously. As I type, MSNBC is interviewing a “foreign correspondent” with the NY Post who is labeled as an “expert on the RussiaUkraine conflict.”

    English Teachers’ Org. Suggests an End to Reading and Writing

    Now, instead of studying literature and learning to write essays, English classes will focus on “digital media and popular culture.”

    “Students should examine how digital media and popular culture are completely intermingled with language, literature and writing,” the statement read. “The time has come to decenter book reading and essay writing as the pinnacles of English language arts education.”

    Activities like reading books and learning proper grammar and syntax are now insufficient for students of language arts.

    “Educators value the use of teaching and learning practices that help to identify and disrupt the inequalities of contemporary life, including structural racism, sexism, consumerism, and economic injustice,” the statement highlighted.

    I can’t imagine being a parent of young children these days trying to deal with the atrocities faced with the public education system. Between the various education unions, leftist agendas especially CRT and gender issues, deranged individual teachers, removal of any mention of God, in fact chastising and threatening any mention, verbal or written, of God from those in positions of authority, is there any wonder why private & home schooling is gaining significant traction?

    In other words, they made it all up … and lied about it for 5 years

    “Durham notes that both the CIA and FBI were sent on an effective wild goose chase by the Clinton campaign. He notes that the government found the allegations to be manufactured and not even technically possible. He refers to the CIA in the following passage:
    Agency-2 concluded in early 2017 that the Russian Bank-1 data and Russian Phone Provider-1 data was not “technically plausible,” did not “withstand technical scrutiny,” “contained gaps,” “conflicted with [itself],” and was “user created and not machine/tool generated.”

    More evidence that woke Leftists are mentally ill.

    Woke liberals rage after mask mandate on planes was struck down with one doctor warning it could KILL children while another vows to boycott airlines and others demand they lay on special mask-only flights.
