Bishop Shamana's Easter Greeting

March 21, 2008

Dear Sisters and Brothers in Christ,

 

In this season of walking with Jesus during Holy Week, I join you in anticipation of Good Friday, Somber Saturday, and finally, a joyful Easter.

 

Let us remember the millions around the world who share the joy of this day with us. Let us also remember the many in settings of despair and death who are separated from their loved ones because of the Iraq War, prison, homelessness, estrangement, and the myriad other circumstances that separate loved ones from each other.

 

The resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead tells us again that nothing can separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.

 

Your sister and Bishop in Christ,

 

Bishop Beverly J. Shamana
