Subject: Your reflectionI have no idea what reflection on Easter she has in mind (I haven't written about Easter anywhere that I know about). However, I'm thrilled to think Sabrina imagines I have millions of readers!
I was just preparing for a gathering tonight and found your website. I am saddened that you think so little of all the tenets of faith that go into Easter. Everything you wrote about is at the heart of Easter. We are sinners who needed Christ to die and rise for us. Flowers and decorations are about celebrating this reality. We were created in the image and likeness of God, yet act like demons in disguise. God made sure that his love is always present in our world through the Easter mystery. Everyday should celebrate Easter. But we have one day where we commemorate it through profound celebration. Yes, we should feel shame for our sins. We act less than what we were made to be and thereby dishonor our God with our infidelity. It would be crude to say that we shouldn't feel shame for the infidelity to a spouse. How much more God should be respected than even a spouse! And the other shame is that you share your misguided dribble with millions on the internet. Hopefully a church will see you in the pews this Easter!
