  There is such a build up and mass media when it comes to the Superbowl... They even give an extra week for the game (2 weeks between the Division Championship and the BIG game). Of course, this gives the time for the news stations, radio and talking heads to share their opinions and even for the gambling associations to roll out the line on the event. 

As I sat back to reflect on the importance of this week for Christians with Easter this Sunday, it struck me. This is the SuperBowl for Christians. The Season of Lent for 40 days (approx 6 weeks) provides the opportunity to properly prepare for the BIG day, typically with prayer, repentance and self-denial. In a world filled with such luxury and distractions it is many times hard to find true joy in the faith. It is amazing to me that in the world those most happy typically have the least of "material things".  

The final week- titled Holy Week reviews the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ. This is a special week and years ago when learning of it I found myself coming to the faith in a real way. So many people seek their identity in sports, music and things that fade away. I love that this week brings myself back to the realization of keeping my identity in something that is unchanging and will remain. Over 2,000 years later we celebrate this week and the sacrifice of a great Messiah for sinners like you and me. I can't tell you who won the Superbowl 5 years ago but I can share with you that 25 years ago I met my Savior. 

 

 

I share this with you as an invitation to join me this Sunday for my favorite event of the year. Easter SunRise Service at the Lincoln Memorial... Yes SunRise so the event is at 6 AM if you want good seats and 6:30 AM if you want to get there just in time for the start. As you sit there at the Lincoln Memorial we face the reflecting pool and the Washington Monument. The sun rises as we celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ. The cadence from the audience: He is Risen... He is Risen Indeed. 

If you come to the event find me in the crowd because we always go to METRO DINER afterwards in Arlington, VA. May your Easter and Holy Week be a blessing in your lives and those you know...

Nicole's Book Review: Still Alice By Lisa Genova

by Nicole Nellis-Cockrell

Still Alice (Lisa Genova) - Review By Nicole



Book Cover Via Amazon
 

Last month I read an amazing book. I am so blessed to be in a book club that takes me outside of my own reading box.

"Still Alice" is about a topic I was not familiar with; early onset Alzheimer's disease. The book followed a linguistics professor at Harvard and this terrible disease she was diagnosed with. The insight Lisa Genova gives you is wonderful and you truly feel like you are walking alongside Alice as she learns to live a new normal life.

I highly recommend this book as I thoroughly enjoyed reading it. You may also be aware that this has been turned into a movie as well starring Julianne Moore who just won Best Actress for her role. If you want to learn the story without reading or after you read, then at least check out a great area movie theater the Angelika Film Center in Fairfax's Mosaic District while you are doing it!

The great part of Spring Forest is the location. Only a short drive down the Fairfax County Parkway and you are in downtown Springfield. From there you have access to Washington DC via the Blue Line Springfield/Franconia Metro and the rest of the DC Metro area via the Mixing Bowl (I-95, I-395, I-495).

Springfield also has a lot of great restaurants (like Mike's American Grill) and the brand new Springfield Town Center Mall which has all the shops you want, a Target, and a movie theater.
