HAPPY EASTER to one and all from Fayetteville! Gina and I truly hope this edition of the THK finds you well and in good spirits.
We are certainly looking forward to the state convention and being able to reunite with many of you. We are also looking forward to celebrating the many successes that you have experienced this fraternal year.
It is our prayer, with two months to go in this fraternal year, that your councils have achieved all you set out to achieve. If not, there are still two months that can make a difference for you and your council. Don’t give up – strive to accomplish your goals! If there is anything that the state officers can do to provide you some support, don’t hesitate to contact us.
As I write this, the Gospel message for the day comes from the Gospel of John and is the story of how the Pharisee named Nicodemus went to Jesus and asked, “How can a man once grown old be born again?”
Jesus’ reply was quite simple in that he told Nicodemus that “What is born of flesh is flesh and what is born of spirit is spirit.”
I share this as I was in awe at our Easter Vigil when we brought six adults into our Church. It struck me that Jesus’ words are exactly what those six new members experienced during their Rite of Initiation. Their flesh remained flesh, but their spirit was anew in Christ. What an awesome experience for our new members and those of us witnessing.
I pray that you spirit is renewed with the Easter Season and we grow to be more Christ-like each day.
May Christ’s be with you until next time.
