Faith community celebrates Easter

The Rev. Harry Fowler, assistant pastor of Englewood Baptist Church, said Easter is the most important day in the Christian calendar because it celebrates the reason for the Christian faith.

This year, the Orthodox churches celebrate Easter on the same Sunday that Roman Catholics and Protestants mark the holy festival.

Governor P.Sadasivam said that the resurrection of Jesus Christ inspire us to serve the weak and the downtrodden in a spirit of love and oneness.

For 2,000 years Easter is accompanied by holy fire, which inexplicably lights up in the Church of the Holy Sepulcher in Jerusalem, Israel.

He therefore called on Christian faithful to use the period to rededicate themselves to God and reflect on the significance of Easter, which is the bedrock of the Christian faith. For Christians, Easter celebrates the rising of Christ from the grave three days after his crucifixion and death.




Meanwhile, NAIJ.com recently reported that former presidential aide, Dr Doyin Okupe says Ex-President Goodluck Jonathan trusted the wrong people when he was in power. All that Jesus had told them was now coming back to them and was making sense to them. all was being fulfilled as Jesus had said.

Christians have been advised to proclaim the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, to signify the finished work of faith and eternal life through salvation.

Many celebrated Easter service at St. Theresa Catholic church in Palm Springs Sunday morning. Who can resist singing louder to "He Arose" or thinking about Jesus when they sing "In the Garden", which to many Christians is an all-time favorite. The denominations, which jealously guard different sections of the church, held separate services one after another Sunday. "Easter is about mystery of god".

"We turned it into a big celebration - we set up the chairs in a big rectangle facing the communion table".

The statement reads: "I wish all Nigerians a happy Easter in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord".
