Christians Celebrate Good Friday Across the Region

We can't ever forget about the chocolate.

This is the meaning of Easter for us!

"They do it in such a life-like way, it is so believable - it hits the mark", said Joachim Klenk, one of the spectators.

"When we share in the suffering of the cross of Christ we are also being raised to share in the resurrection". Many people observed the day by donating blood or feeding the needy. "That's what we wanna celebrate Sunday", Johnson said.

While felicitating with Christians on the celebration, Wike assured that he would continue to make sacrifices for the state, to defend its interests and ensure they always enjoy good governance.

Knitt said he is new to his role at the church, so he is not sure how many people to expect for Easter Mass.

Blue Jays 3B Donaldson departs with calf injury
Now in addition to the quiet bats, there is some concern with Donaldson who pulled up with a sore calf on Sunday in Tampa. Marco Estrada took his first loss of the season giving up 5 earned runs on 7 hits while striking out 5 over 5 innings.

Nagaland also observed Good Friday by holding fast and special services in churches across the Christian dominated state. Maundy Thursday has several different other names including Holy Thursday, Covenant Thursday, Great Thursday, Thursday of Mysteries, and Sheer Thursday.

A cleric, Pastor Tunji Olagoke has urged Christians to emulate life of sacrifice of Jesus Christ. However, it is called Good Friday for two reasons.

But Easter is the day when God defeated death. "But most Americans not only hold favorable views of Christ, but also maintain a commitment to Jesus that's still important in their lives today", said Barna Group President David Kinnaman. The early Christians certainly believed. Many people eat dinner with family as a way to spend time with family on this day. May we too die to self (and all our sins), so as to rise with him in glory.

"God had sent his son Jesus, to save us from our sins". We all love Christmas, and we are grateful that God entered our world in a brand new way.

Easter eggs serve as a reminder of the holiday's very ancient origins outside of the Christian tradition. Cracked eggs symbolize an empty tomb. That's why it was such a big deal back then.

A majority of Americans believe Jesus was who he said he was, and that his message still matters. As we approach Sunday let us keep this in the forefront of our thoughts.
