For most Christians, Easter 2020 is April 12.  This year religious observance will be low-key as the coronavirus has effected even worship services.  So let’s talk about its significance to the world of Christianity.  Remember, Easter is the basis for faith-based Christianity-Jesus rising from the dead on the third day.  In this time of uncertainty, I think we all need a framework of belief, of faith.  Take this time to seek your framework for living and believing in a faith-based life.  Stay well.
