March 29, 2015- PASSOVER AND EASTER: OVERCOMING BONDAGE, OVERCOMING DEATH

Dr. Bob will be delivering the Message at the 10AM Sunday morning service at the Unity Spiritual Center in Asbury, NJ on Palm Sunday, 3/29/15.  He will then lead a 2 hour 30 minute workshop starting at 1PM (after lunch). The topic for both events is “Passover and Easter.”

The holidays of Passover and Easter celebrate the foundational events that lie at the heart of Judaism and Christianity, respectively. They seem to be very different in focus. Passover, the Festival of Freedom, recounts how God, acting through Moses, freed the Hebrew people from bondage in Egypt and set them on their journey to the Promised Land. Easter commemorates the three days that began with the crucifixion of Jesus and culminated, not in his death, but his resurrection as the Christ. Yet we can understand both as parables of the spiritual journey — hidden maps that guide us away from the ego’s fearful world and back toward the all-encompassing, all-loving embrace of God.
