Thanks for the Easter wishes, Hope.  

Sadly, this Easter finds me very sad and depressed.  This will be my first Easter, since I became a Christian in 2001, that I don't have a home church to worship at. 

It is a complex story, but late last summer I was betrayed by an Elder in my church and was subsequently forced to leave that church.  In that time, I haven't found a new church to call my home and this leaves me feeling deeply depressed.  Christmas was sad, but Easter should be a joyous time and it just isn't happening this year.  

My faith in Jesus and the redemptive work that He performed remains strong, so I'll thank Him in private prayer. 

Though, there is nothing quite like public worship and I miss that.

I'm sorry you haven't found a church, Chance.  Just remember that He lives...and He lives within you.  Maybe you can find your joy in that simple fact.   

Thanks, Suzi.  True Words.

 

I can't even begin to imagine how you feel Chance, and i am so sorry that you have had to deal with this experience.  I think my heart would break if that happened to me.  The good news is that God will always, always, ALWAYS meet you where you are... at home, or in a church.  He is always there.  Hang on to your faith!

I wish you lived here.  I would love for you to come visit the church my family attends.  If you are interested, our church does does live webcasts.  Let me know if you'd like to watch it sometimes, and I'll be happy to send you the link!!

Be Blessed and know that He loves you!

I would like that very much Lesley.  Your mom has my private e-mail if you want to send me the link. 

My old church used to have delayed webcasts and it was great on those Sundays that I was sick.  I could just load the computer and watch from home.  Pretty tech savvy for a 500 member church.

I just sent you an email with the link to the webcast!  Let me know what you think :-)

Hope your Easter was okay Chance.

I hope that you get a chance to take a nice long walk in nature, by yourself.  Take your time and note the little things, and I bet that God will be walking with you soon.  It won't replace the Church for you, but I find it always eases my sou.

That always works for me, 16.  Even a short stroll around the yard at this time of year is an affirmation of new beginnings when you notice the little things.

Speaking of finding God in nature, I've felt a special afinity for the Smokey Mountains since I was a teenager...a feeling of peace and serenity.  I've often said that if I could find a church that made me feel like I feel in those serene mountains, I would spend most of my time in that church.

 Yep Suzi, mountains work fo me. No better way to relieve stress and think than a long walk.

Yes - I know that when everyone around me seems incredibly stupid, thick headed mean and foolish, it's time for a long long walk in the mountains.

Amazing how much smarter and nicer people are when I get back!

That's exactly how I feel about my hormone pills.

 

I hope that you get a chance to take a nice long walk in nature, by yourself. 

In fact, I did just that on Saturday.  There is a river about 20 miles from where I live that has wonderful hiking trails on both sides of it.  An old rail bridge was converted to serve pedestrian use.  

This spot is near a major aircraft intersection and you can sit for hours and watch dozens of planes flying East-West and North-South overhead.  The planes are at 30,000-40,000 feet, so I always try and guess where they are heading.  From the ground some of them appear to get very close even though they are separated by thousands of feet in altitude.

Happy Easter everyone!  I'm sorry to hear that Chance! =(.  I hope things get better for you! =). 
Happy Easter to you all ;-)

"I SO voted for Barack Obama!  10/25/08"

Obama did attend Church on Sunday.

That's great news for Fox/Rush because they can say he's not attending every week so he's just putting on a show for the press.... and he's a muslim...

When I was a kid the following notice was in the Church bulletin:

For those of you unaccustomed to seeing the church without the creche or easter lily decorations, we are now starting a policy to have them represented monthly.  We hope this will inspire you to attend mass more frequently.  (Heavily paraphrased of course)

Attending church on Easter and Christmas only is a long standing tradition - in the Catholic faith anyway.

Canada has Easter Mondya today, not sure what it is. But I wanted to also wish Canadian a Happy Easter, maybe someone knows if it is similar to ours?  

My understanding is that Easter Monday is a holiday in UK Commonwealth countries that is used mainly for traveling home from Easter celebrations.  Not sure about the specifics.  Probably used mainly for shopping, like Boxing Day (December 26th).
