for the week of April 2oth

“Christ did not come to make bad men good, but to make dead men live.”

- oft-used saying in the Orthodox Church

Scripture Reading: John 20:1-9

This is Easter, the day when Christians celebrate the resurrection of Jesus and, alongside Him, all of mankind. As you go through your week this week, take special attention to focus on the various acts of rebirth you witness. This is the time of year when trees and flowers are blooming, insects are coming back to life, and birds are on their nests, just to name a few. Open your eyes and look for resurrection in the everyday world; when you see it, marvel at how much farther beyond Christ has carried you.

Whisper a prayer of thanks, and enjoy.

  2. Tomorrow starts today.

    We are bombarded everyday with messages from different outlets to think about the future, to prepare for tomorrow, to leave a better place for our children (that’s a favorite line often parroted by politicians, which I despise)…etc, but, we completely forget to assess or ignore where we are today. Often, we deprive ourselves of many things for a bigger payoff in the future, but who knows what the future will bring.
    Another manifestation of the “future crowd” is the New Year’s resolution craze. If someone waits till January 1, at 12:01 a.m. to want to change his/her life, ways, habits for the new year forward, it is an illustration of lack of introspect, self-reflection, self-assessment during the 365 days prior.
    Personally, I am continuously assessing and re-evaluting where I am and whether I am at the right “place” and adapt my plans accordingly otherwise I become stagnant and we all know what happens to stagnant waters.
