Easter Sunday this year comes on April 20. But, Easter Sunday next year will be Sunday, April 5, 2015. The date for Easter is determined on a lunisolar calendar similar to the Hebrew calendar, in that they do not fall on a fixed date in the Gregorian or Julian calendars.
Easter Sunday is an important day in the Christian faith because it celebrates Jesus Christ’s resurrection. Millions of Christians (Roman Catholics, Protestants, Evangelical Christians, and Orthodox Christians) around the world will gather in churches to celebrate Easter, a one-of-a-kind interfaith ceremony on this Easter Sunday.
The celebration of Easter challenges believers to ponder the meaning of their faith in Jesus Christ. The message of Easter is that death is not the end but the beginning of a spiritual transformation and life everlasting in His Kingdom.
“Him, being delivered by the determinate counsel and foreknowledge of God, ye have taken, and by wicked hands have crucified and slain: Whom God hath raised up, having loosed the pains of death: because it was not possible that he should be holden of it.” Acts 2:23-24
Wishing you and yours a joyous and glorious Easter!
