RADIO PROGRAM NO. 365 - Easter's Relevance Today, Part I

[The speaker is Michael Thorneloe. The questioner is Robert McKinnon.]

Questioner: Traditional religious observances such as Easter can seem very far removed from the climate of hate and violence in which many people find themselves today. I wonder what significance Easter can have for somebody who feels that he has very good reason to be full of hate?

Speaker: My heart certainly goes out to those who live in hate, who feel themselves subject to fear, injustice, or exploitation. Really, all of us need more of the love and forgiveness that is brought out in the Scriptural account of Easter events.
