Easter is one of the most important days of the Christian calendar and this year it falls amidst one of the most chaotic times many have ever seen. Easter is a time of joy as we celebrate Jesus who overcame the perils of life here on earth.
I feel that we should be looking to him and the fact that he overcame the trials and tribulations we face to better help us cope with what we are going through over the past few weeks. We also need to keep the faith going forward as we head into the unknown.
I will be the first person to admit that I get bogged down in the day-to-day chaos with the relentless news coverage surrounding the coronavirus. Along with that, we all get frustrated and sometimes aggravated with what seems like overbearing and even draconian actions being taken by our government.
Nonetheless, it is extremely important that we keep the faith and understand that we will come out of this stronger than ever before. I have seen first hand the effect this is having on people throughout my neighborhood. My wife and I take our dog for a walk almost every day and we have met neighbors we never knew and made new friends that we likely wouldn’t have made if it weren’t for the circumstances.
