Clergy Corner: Soul what?

<strong>Clergy Corner: Soul what?</strong>
File PhotoSusan Beckett. ■ By Susan Beckett / Contributed I’ve always thought it would be cool to be able to visit heaven and ask God about some intriguing questions I’ve always had. I’ve never heard them addressed by anyone—ever—and would love to get God’s take on them. For instance, why seven days in a week? I’m thinking that if we could have eight days, we could have a five day workweek plus always have a three-day weekend. Sounds pretty good to me! And what about when Cain killed Abel in Genesis and Abel became the very first human to die? Did Abel have to wait for centuries by himself, sitting in (more…)

Clergy Corner: Easter—awakening to infinite possibilities

<strong>Clergy Corner: Easter—awakening to infinite possibilities</strong>

Clearly, Jesus attained the Christ Consciousness, which in turn, brought forward the resurrection—the most significant event of this Easter holiday season. Jesus, the Christ, became one with God and all the capabilities of God were his. His attainment of the atonement or at-one-ment, demonstrated the possibility for all of mankind to accomplish the same. Through that event, life was transformed for all. Just like Jesus, we are created with the same potential. (more…)

Did you know what Passover celebration is?

■ Metro Service Passover is a celebration of the liberation of Jews from Egyptian slavery. Along with Sukkot and Shavuot, Passover is one of the Three Pilgrimage Festivals that feature agricultural offerings and several unique mitzvot. The seder, an elaborate meal that customarily takes place on the first night of the holiday, is at the center of Passover celebrations. According to ReformJudaism.org, “seder” means “order” and refers to the 15 separate steps that are taken in traditional order as expressed in the book “Haggadah.” Blessing, washing, eating a vegetable, breaking of matzot, storytelling, and many other components comprise the seder. Other traditional symbols are featured on the seder plates and tables, (more…)

<strong>The season of Lent and Easter</strong>
Photo by Metro ServiceA festive and celebratory day for Christians, Easter Sunday is a time for sharing the good news of Jesus’ resurrection. ■ Metro Service Spring is eagerly anticipated, as many people look forward to enjoying the great outdoors once more. Spring is also a special time of year for practicing Christians. Beginning on Ash Wednesday and lasting 40 weekdays until the arrival of Easter Sunday, the Lenten season is a very important time of year for Christians. During Lent, Christians prepare for Easter by observing a period of fasting, repentance, self-denial, and spiritual discipline. While the Bible does not reference Lent, the practice of observing Lent has become a (more…)

The evidence is so overwhelming that it cannot be denied. It’s recorded within scripture, history, and found in archaeology. The Apostle Paul wrote to the Christians, “For I delivered to you first of all that which I also received that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures, and that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according (more…)

Barreto Lugo / Contributed Starting on March 25, the Christian church all over the world will immerse herself in the commemoration of Holy Week. It’s the tribute of the savior, Jesus Christ, the son of God, in the week of his passion. It’s the remembrance of his harrowing torture and suffering on the cross, his sacrificial death and hasty burial, but above all; it is the week before the celebration of his glorious resurrection. Beginning with Palm Sunday, where Christians celebrate Christ’s triumphal entrance into Jerusalem and including the solemn services of Holy (more…)

Clergy Corner: You are a treasure worth sharing

<strong>Clergy Corner: You are a treasure worth sharing</strong>
File PhotoSusan Beckett ■ By Susan Beckett / Contributed Ever since I was a youngster, I’ve enjoyed reading the newspaper, and in particular, the advice columns—Dear Abby and Ann Landers—to be precise. I remember one very quirky letter a lady wrote in about a friend she had known for years. One day, she asked her friend for one of her yummy casserole recipes. The friend told her that it was a secret recipe and refused to share it. When the friend died, she had requested in her will that the recipe be buried with her in the casket. Geez! I mean really, being buried with a casserole recipe? Pretty out there! (more…)
