What Works: Hunting down opportunities

This past weekend we celebrated Easter, a holiday filled with family, renewal and hope for the future. The hallmark of the holiday, for kids, is the Easter egg hunt, where they run as fast as they can and look for eggs with hidden treasures inside.

An Easter Sentiment

Over two thousand years ago, Roman tax collectors using torture, murder and slavery, humiliated, scourged and crucified a Jewish Rabbi that today is revered by a billion or more followers as teacher, Rabbi, Christ, Messiah, or Son of God. But no matter what we call the mystery of Jesus, each Easter we celebrate the resurrection of faith, hope and love as taught by the greatest Rabbi who ever lived. On Easter we celebrate the triumph of good over evil and of the light over the darkness in our troubled world.
