Fr. Mike wishes and prays for the very best Easter ever for you in this program for Easter Sunday, as well as for life in all its fullness.

He talks about our fear of sin and our deep fear of death. But our faith overcomes all that fear.  He speaks of the wonderful Easter stories, such as the women at the tomb and the disciples on the way to Emmaus.

But most importantly, Fr. Mike speaks of two aspects of Easter:
1) memory and 2) Christ is alive now.

At the end of the first half, a beautiful Alleluia is sung by Tacji.
Then in the second half, Fr. Mike talks about the challenge we have in Easter and that there is nothing that we can’t overcome
when Jesus is with us. Ralph and Victoria Mohutsky end the program with a beautiful rendition of And The Sun Rises.

Immigration is a volatile subject. How should we, as Christians, respond to this issue?

In this program, Fr. Mike talks about Ruth, an immigrant herself. He gives the historical context, about 1100 years before Jesus. Naomi was living in Bethlehem. The country was struck with famine and hardship. But, on the other side, things were good. So she and her husband moved to Moab. They were immigrants in this land. Here her two sons married local women. 

Then her husband and sons died.  Now Naomi wanted to return to her native country. Naomi told the two women that they should stay in their own land and marry someone there. But Ruth chose not to do so. There is a beautiful passage of Ruth telling Naomi that she loved her and would go with her. So,they go to Bethlehem and now Ruth is the immigrant.

Fr. Mike looks at the reasons for immigration and why attitudes toward immigrants are not always good. He quotes several passages from the Bible about how we should treat immigrants and strangers.  He then looks at in-laws and commitment. There is a beautiful “Moment of Commitment” during the program.
