Thoughts on Sunday

Thinking much these days about why Christians worship on Sunday, the first day of the week, instead of on Saturday the 7th and Sabbath Day.
What is certain is that Christ rose, or was ‘arisen’, on the First Day of the week! Pentecost too, occurred upon the first Day of the week. Christ entered his own rest from His earthly labours on a Sunday – not a Sabbath.
The New Testament teaches that the resurrection of Jesus, which Sundays celebrate, is the foundation of the Christian faith; thus Sunday is the most joyous day of the week. God has given us a new birth into living hope on this day and we begin the week walking in a new way of life.
Sunday is not a day of rest but a joyous day of celebration for Christians or should be. Sunday dinner should be a gathering of the family to renew itself.

About thebows99krug

Hi, I am Eric, a retired librarian. I was born in St. Michael's Hospital, Toronto and raised in the downtown area north of the Art Gallery, south of the University of Toronto. I went to Orde Street Public School, Harbord C.I., University College at the UofT and the UofT's Faculty of Library and Information Science. I meet my wife Patricia at FLIS; our first date was on November 15, 1968. We were engaged February 14, 1969 and married on June 21, 1969. Our family includes son, James; daughter-in-law, Erin; (both writers), grand-daughters, Vivian and Eleanor; and Sonic, a very friendly ginger tabby. My beloved wife died January 7, 2017 and our 19 year old cat Pooka died January 8, 2017. I would like to hear from any other class of '63 alumni of Harbord C.I. and class of '67 alumni of UofT's University College.
