Ö If Christ hath not been raised, then is our preaching vain, your faith also is vain.           (1 Corinthians15:14)




Dear Friends:


Every year in the Ash Wednesday liturgy the Church invites you to observe a holy Lent, by self-examination and repentance, by prayers, fasting, and self-denial; and by reading and meditation on Godís holy Word, and, to make a right beginning of repentance. 


Therefore, Lenten Season is the season for reconciliation, by penitence and forgiveness, through self-examination, self-denial, reading and meditating on Godís Holy Word. Only then, can we really see and appreciate what Jesus had done for our sins.  If we participate in the passion of Jesus, we will share the real joy of His resurrection.


Without the experience of Jesusí suffering, resurrection will be meaningless to us.  Even though each year Christian and non-Christian alike celebrate Easter as a holiday, in most of the cases Easter celebration is only a routine.  They do not really enjoy the real joy of the resurrection.  Their faith will not be deepened.  So we must well prepare ourselves before Easter.


Furthermore, for those who, for whatever reason, have become disconnected from the church, this is the best time to reconnect and renew your relationship with God.


Easter is right around the corner.  Are you ready to celebrate a real joyful Easter?  If not, it is still not too late. True Sunshine has prepared some programs (listed below) to help you.  Please join me and other brothers and sisters in Christ to prepare to enjoy a joyful Easter.


True Sunshine welcomes you to participate in fulfilling our mission.  True Sunshine needs you.  You will find enclosed with this letter an Easter offering envelope.  This is a suitable time to make a special donation to the church in thanksgiving for, or in remembrance of our loved ones.


Please join us at True Sunshine for the following services and devotions during Holy Week and Easter.


Yours in Christ,



The Rev. Dr. Franco Kwan
