On Sunday, April 4, people of faith and all American people will observe the overlap of three significant holidays. First, that evening will be the end of the Jewish celebration of Passover, commemorating how God set free the Hebrew people whom Pharaoh enslaved. Second, western Christians celebrate Easter, proclaiming the resurrection of Jesus from the dead. Finally, it is the anniversary of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King’s assassination in Memphis while fighting for union rights.

Rev. Jason Wells is executive director of the N.H. Council of Churches. Bishop James Hazelwood heads the New England Synod–ELCA Lutheran. Bishop A. Robert Hirschfeld heads the Episcopal Church of New Hampshire.
