AOC Sunday Report - Easter Sunday

The AOC Sunday Report is RIGHT HERE!
The AOC Sunday Report is RIGHT HERE!

Today is Easter, the celebration of the Resurrection of Jesus Christ.  The central event of not only the Christian Year; but of Christianity and the entire world.  Witness the terms AD and BC.  Anno Domini (the year of our Lord) and Before Christ.  Even the politically correct BCE - CE (that is to say, Before Common Era and Common Era) divides time at the birth of our Lord.  Even those who fall in that trap must recognize Him!

When you google images for the term Easter, you find 95 percent of the images, eggs, bunnies and chocolates.  That is NOT our celebration. That is NOT what Easter is about. Easter is not about finding goodies inside plastic shells. The Christian year has four main celebrations. Christmas celebrates the incarnation or human birth of Jesus, the Christ of God.  Epiphany celebrates His revealing to the Gentiles, that would be us!  Good Friday remembers, the word celebrate hardly fits here, the one time sacrifice for all mankind for all time by our Lord and Savior (that is where the word savior comes in) that we might be accounted as perfect when we stand before Him at the final judgment day.  Today, Easter is, in Spanish La Resurreccion, in English The Resurrection, The Return to Life of Jesus, Christ of God, who returned from death, from Hell, to deliver His promise of eternal life in person!

Today we have super sermons from Bishop Roy and Revs Hap and Bryan.  Each is wildly different, but I promise you that you will enjoy each of them!

There are also a lot of people who need your prayers.  Start with Kurt who just got out of the hospital today - TODAY - after having beaten down sepsis, undergoing open heart surgery to repair damage the infection did, rebuilding his heart with spare parts.  Keep him and his family, particularly his wife Mary, in your prayers.

Pray for Shamu who is trying to build strength to allow surgery to re-assemble her digestive tract, and for Jimmy, Mary and Bob to have the cancer driven from their bodies.  Work out from there.

Have a great week ahead with God's help.
