A view from my side.
Today is Easter Sunday. All across the world, people are celebrating the “rebirth” of Christ. It is also the time when many people are celebrating Passover, the liberation of the Jews from Egypt. It is a time of deeply religious reflection and a time when millions of people around the world renew and rejuvenate their Faith.
The key world in all of this is Faith. The people who celebrate today have Faith in something bigger then themselves. They have Faith in something stronger. They have Faith in a grand plan for the world. Their Faith guides their life and gives them comfort. Their Faith gives them strength when times get hard. It gives them explanations for things they cannot explain. Faith sustains and supports them. Faith gives them peace of mind and makes their life easier.
To all my friends who celebrate their Faith today, I wish you well. I sometimes envy those with Faith, for Faith is a gift I have yet to receive.
