I want to commend Bro. Howard Coop, chaplain of Lancaster Lodge #104 for his fine explanation of the meaning of Easter and then want to share the fact that 50 days after Easter comes Pentecost Sunday. This is the day set aside to celebrate the birth of the New Testament Church. In Matthew’s Gospel the statement is made, “And upon this rock I will build my church. ... ” Some view this as the day the church was first established and others say that this is the first revival of the New Testament Church.
