Easter is over and people are getting back to normal. Let us continually share the love and peace, also after today.

April 21st, 2014, 10pm

It was 12°C with few clouds. The breeze was light.

Last Friday ‘The Passion’ was on the national television, broadcasted by the Dutch christian broadcasting television with the attempt to translate the Christian Easter story to the modern secular Dutch society. Big dutch music and television stars were featured on this big happening, an event that is every year during the easter period live broadcasted on Dutch national television with actors, singers and great personalities playing the story of Jesus and his disciples who dies for the sin of the human being. When I spoke a good christian friend of mine on the phone about what she thought of this event, her answer was not that enthusiast ‘I have my questions about the used methods’.

Meanwhile a lot of people visited their families and ate ‘easter eggs’. A tradition with an interesting history. Easter is as every year also used as an opportunity to visit families and friends and to get new inspirations. Yet, I have to mention that Easter is much more.

Easter is about a broader story, a story that is bigger than eating eggs and broadcasting a big happing on the national television. Easter is about love. A love from someone who loved us before us knowing him. A great love that goes beyond our thinking.

Knowing this, let us be thankful for the received love. Not given to us by our effort, merit or right, but only by grace. Let us be grateful for this unconditional love and share peace among each other. Let everyday contains this beautiful easter story.

Adrian, David Wade and Christine said thanks.
