Happy Resurrection Day…Or Easter…Or Passover

And speaking of Passover, a group of members of the church I belong to had a Passover meal the previous Saturday on the day Judaics have what is called the Seder, a Passover meal. I did not attend, but fine for whoever did. Jesus Christ, the ‘Passover Lamb’ so to speak–the sacrifice for sin, that is, in the Jewish Passover feast time which requires lamb or other sacrifices for sin–likely also celebrated the Seder in His day. Most Christians call this Holy day Easter, but I call it Resurrection Day.

I prefer Resurrection Day since it is the day Christ was resurrected, that is, came back to life as seen by Apostles, Disciples and others.  Easter or Resurrection Day follows Good Friday, where Christ died in the crucifixion (as would the Passover Lamb die as the sacrifice for sin), and then Holy Saturday, where Christ “descends into Hell” as the Apostles Creed states in order to liberate good souls who did not have the opportunity to claim Christ as Savior but did God’s will anyway (such as the prophets, John the Baptist, and others). But instead of a Passover sacrifice which would have to be replicated year after year, this Sacrifice was for all sin, for all sinners, for all time. If you are not a believer on Christ, please consider that act as an option for you.

The Apostles Creed, by the way, is a statement of faith uttered mostly by Roman Catholics, and maybe Orthodox…I don’t really know much about the various Orthodox Christian doctrines, but maybe they say this Creed as well. Or maybe an Orthodox version…. the Catholic version mentions the Catholic church.

Hopefully, you won’t be stuck at home and can attend church on this Christian holy day, which is where the word ‘holiday’ comes from. My state, Texas, is now ‘open for business’ (and never should have closed in the first place! If one is sick, covid or otherwise, stay home! Sheesh!), and hopefully, so is yours. Or your country if outside the US. Virtual church or ‘e-church’ is fine, but still… It’s better to actually be able to receive Communion if you know what I mean…

Blessings! Further, I will be posting early the coming week. The post will concern the original ‘Foreword’ of the original third trilogy novel, The Prodigal Band.

Author: deborahlagarde

Born on Long Island, NY, in 1952, now live in the mountains of far west Texas. Began writing fiction stories at about 8 years old with pen and loose leaf paper, and created the characters in my Prodigal Band Trilogy as a teenager. From the 70s to the 90s I created the scenario which I believe was inspired. While bringing up and home schooling my two children I continued to work on the novels and published "Battle of the Band" in 1996 and "The Prophesied Band" in 1998. Took off the next several years to complete home schooling and also working as an office manager for the local POA. In 2016, I retired, then resumed The Prodigal Band, a FREE PDF book that tells the whole story to its glorious end. Hint: I'm a true believer in Christ and I'm on a mission from God, writing to future believers, not preaching to the choir. God gave me a talent and, like the band in my books, I am using that talent for His glory, not mine (and, like me, the band is on its own journey, only fictional.) I also wrote for my college newspaper and headed up production, was a columnist in a local newspaper in the early 2000s, and wrote for and edited "Log of the Trail," the news letter for the Texas Mountain Trail Writers, and wrote for and edited it's yearly catalog of writings, "Chaos West of the Pecos." OmegaBooks is my self-publishing sole proprietorship company founded in 1995. Other jobs included teaching secondary math, health aide, office worker, assembly line work, and free-lance writing and bookkeeping,much of it while home schooling.
