An Easter compendium

An Easter compendium

Technically, this is probably not a compendium.  But since the great day of forgiveness and triumph is near, I’m counting on your indulgence.

We live in a momentous time.  Many things are out there to trouble us.  But as with our brothers and sisters who celebrate Passover at this same season of the moon, we have a liturgy to remind us of grace, provision, and promises eternally kept.

In honor of the Christian brothers and sisters killed in Kenya this past week, the first offering for this Easter commemoration is a video of Kenyan Christians singing the modern Swahili song “Nimemuona Yesu,” or “I saw Jesus.”  I defy you to hear this joyful song and despair of the fate of the ones we lost this week.  (And yes, I chose this one in part because it features our shipmates in the Kenyan navy.)

For those old enough to remember just how momentous our time has been, a blast from the (relatively recent) past.

And for those who are ready to do a little celebrating, already: one of the best-known favorites for an Easter morning.

Happy Easter from Liberty Unyielding.
