The Strife Is Over!


                                                        HE IS RISEN!


The strife is o’er, the battle done, the victory of life is won; the song of triumph has begun. Alleluia! The powers of death have done their worst, but Christ their legions hath dispersed: let shouts of holy joy outburst. Alleluia, ALLELUIA! ALLELUIA!!

This Easter we are awaken to a reality that we all hang by a tender thread. All that we take for granted has been compromised by an unwanted, merciless invader who cares not about the destruction it leaves in its wake. What Easter teaches is that the most challenging things of life can be overcome if we but pause from solely looking for answers around us and, instead, begin to look for answers from above.

Though we may be compelled to be at a distance from each other at this time, we are now and will always be one and united in Christ.
