An Easter message from Bishop Eaton

Life triumphs over death and love wins. Presiding Bishop Elizabeth Eaton offers an Easter message:

It all started with such promise–the angel announcing to Mary that the child she would bear would be called Son of the Most High; the conviction of Mary that this child would be the embodiment of God’s promised justice, that the hungry would be filled with good things and the rich sent away empty; angels announcing his birth; thousands being fed; the sick healed; the dead raised.
