I tuned in Good Morning America Weekend on ABC for a little while as I worked in the kitchen this morning. Easter Sunday apparently seemed to be a good time to dredge up some Christian news, new and old.
For instance, per their website earlier today:
Â· On Easter Sunday, we'll check in on the Pope's health live from Vatican City.
Â· We'll also take a look at mega-churches, huge congregations where people can worship, work out and browse books all under one roof.
New: Although unable to speak, the pope gave an Easter Sunday blessing.
Old: Super-sized churches are big business.
I happened to catch that segment, the interview with mom and daughter.
I also caught Kate Snow wishing George Stephanopoulos a â??Happy Easter.â? But then he made a comment about how it wasnâ??t his Easter. Stephanopoulos. Kate Snow mentioned she should have known.
My Greek Orthodox neighbor likes to keep people informed as to her Easter schedule since her religious holiday doesnâ??t always coincide with the Western Christian date of celebration. This year she observes Easter on May 1. On this date Wiccans also celebrate Beltane, â??the conjoining of the goddess with the energy of the god in the sacred marriage which is the basis of all creation.â?
I should check in to GMA on May 1 and catch the news.
