When it comes to the chronic, existential crisis of keeping America a Constitutional Republic, we are in the autumn. With faith in ourselves and the Creator, this too shall pass. Christians and Jews have endured much greater tyranny than what some of our current political leaders have in mind for us.
At this time of year, we celebrate a different covenant, not one with our leaders on Earth, but our Father in Heaven, one which can never be abridged or revoked thanks to his son's sacrifice on Good Friday. Because of that sacrifice, we can celebrate Easter Sunday.
We see death and suffering all around, brought on by the plague of our age. Easter, the rebirth phase, is also a part of that cycle and happens because of the Good Friday part.
