Սիրելի Հայրենակիցներ,
Dear Compatriots,
Dear Friends,

I hope this message finds each one of you and your loved ones healthy and well.

As I ponder on the heartbreaking fallout of the global pandemic, consuming the human mind and soul, and the occasion we are invited to commemorate today, I am reminded of the wisdom that comes from the Word of God (in Ecclesiastes 3) which says:

“There is a time for everything,
And a season for every activity under the heavens.
A time to weep and a time to laugh,
A time to mourn and a time to dance,
A time to embrace and a time to refrain from embracing,”

Երբ մտածեմ այս օրերու համաշխարհային թագաժահրի համաճարակի պատճառած անձկութեան մասին, որ կը սպառէ մարդկային միտքն ու հոգին, եւ այն առիթը՝ որ այսօր կը հրաւիրէ մեզ յիշատակելու Հայոց Ցեղասպանութեան 105ամեակը , կը մտաբերեմ իմաստութիւնը որ կը բխի Աստուծոյ Խօսքէն (Ժողովողի 3) ուր կ՚ըսէ.

«Ամէն բանի ատենը կայ,
Ու երկինքի տակ եղող ամէն գործի ժամանակը։
Ծնանելու ժամանակ եւ մեռնելու ժամանակ։
Լալու ժամանակ եւ ծիծաղելու ժամանակ։
Գրկելու ժամանակ ու գրկելէ հեռանալու ժամանակ։»

An Easter Message by Rev. Jeremy Tovmassian, Pastor of the Armenian Evangelical Church of Chicago and moderator of the Armenian Evangelical Union of North America.

He has risen!

He is not here. See the place where they laid Him […] Trembling and bewildered, the women went out and fled from the tomb. They said nothing to anyone, because they were so afraid. — Mark 16:6-8

Jesus has risen!
This announcement to the women at the Christ’s tomb was meant to elicit praise and joyful proclamation. Instead, the announcement issues fear and trembling. Not a word is spoken. The women flee the tomb and the story Mark has been telling ends with a deafening silence.
