Stone slab where Jesus' body was lain

Jane Catherine Rozek in Jerusalem, 2016

I thought I knew the Easter story until I prayed and sobbed on the stone slab that Jesus’ body once stretched out on. Until I read the black and white details in the first report of his resurrection… It was a woman – who first saw Jesus Christ alive after his crucifixion on the cross! Can you visualize it? I can, because we
also took this picture of the burial caves near the old city of Jerusalem! Continue reading

The man had an otherworldly appearance and he asked me,

“Do you know what this Christmas season is really all about?”

“Of course I do,” I said because I had grown up attending a church.

“Ah… but have you ever viewed the birth of God’s son from heaven’s point of view?

nativityI think God is big enough to surprise us all. Nobody can unwrap the full package of understanding an all-knowing God, but Love and Peace in the Christmas time of year are pretty basic concepts.

And it’s looking a lot like Christmas time around here…
and many have celebrated the birth of the one who birthed Christianity.

What makes Jesus Christ different from other prophets and the holy men of old?

Is Jesus Christ going to return? Will God destroy the world? Will only believers be saved? One of my blog fans wrote to me asking these very things. And they seem hard questions to answer but not if we check the original source – Jesus answered them!

Higher Power is only discovered when it is absolutely necessary. Well, out in the middle of the isolated Canadian wilderness, a hundred miles from the nearest town, I discovered the source of this power. I wasn’t afraid anymore! Not quite traditional Christian doctrine, but the pieces all fit together and answered my questions. My faith became an active powerful force!

From Kirkus Reviews: "Familiar concepts, sure, but Rozek’s unconventional perspective makes them seem invigoratingly new."

KIRKUS REVIEW

A passionate rereading of Christianity and the nature of personal faith.

Canadian author Rozek’s debut takes the form of an enthusiastic top-to-bottom re-envisioning of the Christian mythos. ….she goes back to the Bible with fresh eyes and reads it anew in search of the answers to basic questions such as “Why am I here?” or “What’s the purpose of life anyway?”

Rozek’s conceptual revamping of traditional biblical ideas ultimately appeals to the well-known Christian narrative: Jesus died as a sacrifice and as a living key to redemption. “By accepting the death of this Great One as a ransom for our freedom,” Rozek writes, “each of us can belong to something far greater than ourselves.” The book then broadens from this dramatized 21st-century recasting of the Messiah story to include some intriguingly wider suggestions for how the faithful of any denomination can find meaning: “The Great Ones know that in order for us to have abundant lives, we must first learn how to love.”

Familiar concepts, sure, but Rozek’s unconventional perspective makes them seem invigoratingly new. A well-written and welcoming take on the traditional tenets of Western religion.

We can’t nativityknow all there is to know about an all-knowing God. Nobody gets downloaded the full package but I think God is big enough to work through all religions. After all, love and peace are pretty basic concepts for those who believe in a Power Higher than themselves.

But it is beginning to look a lot like Christmas around here… Continue reading
