Today, April 4, 2021 is Easter Sunday and we here at UU A Way Of Life wish you, your family, your friends, you co-workers, your neighbors, your fellow countrymen, and fellow travelers on Planet Earth a Blessed Easter when we celebrate the fact that Love wins.
Jesus of Nazareth demonstrated that the body can be killed but the Spirit lives on in the minds and hearts of those who witness and come after.
Jesus did not see Himself as a victim even though He was tempted. He ultimately rose above His torture and execution, One of His last sentences was "Father, forgive them for they know not what they do," Would that we all could rise above the attacks we endure with such a presence of mind. Jesus rose above His attackers and didn't allow their actions to define His presence of mind or damage the Love in His heart.
For this demonstration of the power of Love we can sing with gusto "Alleluia, He has risen above it, alleluia!!!"
Jesus encourages us in A Course In Miracles in Chapter 6, section 1, paragraph 13, verse 2, "Teach only love, for that is what you are." This verse is the message of Easter.
