Easter stands for Pasha, the celebration of freedom from slavery.
You can give it back that meaning in your own sitting room.
Use your mental freedom.
Before you start Easter dinner, you read poetry or a striking story. Finish with a wish "Let us hope that God tacitly will be watching how we in gratitude exploit indepenedently our talents and howe do good where it's possible." Then grant each other a moment of silence in order to find usability of the thoughts.
This commemoration of mental freedom changes the us traditionally assigned role of listenerbinto the role of leader. It makes God the spectator, the liistener and inspirator.
This message is meant for the believer, whether she or he's a churchgoer or not, is or has been Catholic, Protestant Muslims, Buddhist or anything else bu wants to give meaning to Easter.

This website is a non-denominational effort to accommodate people of many backgrounds, away from religious institutions, in small

Many in the professional clergy understand their role as a "priestly" one in which they are to be intermediaries between the Lord and His flock, being thus trusted through the Ordination process with a certain degree of authority.
Remember: All of the gatherings in the New Testament era were small assemblies that met in homes.
For non-denominational Christians an invitation offered to a work-place acquaintance to a home is much less threatening than one to a church.
House gatherings reject any human authority other than the very real and present rule of Christ, who was inaugurated the king at the first Pentecost (Acts 2). The house gathering assembles are supposed to know the will of its king through the Holy Spirit and to be obedient to that will.
