LDS Easter Messages Mentioned
(Tucson) AZ Daily Star 23Apr00 D1
By M. Scot Skinner: Arizona Daily Star

TUCSON, ARIZONA -- Local LDS leaders were mentioned in a recent Arizona Daily Star article discussing highlights from upcoming Easter Sunday sermons. Bishop Lonnie Sharp of the Countryside ward was quoted in saying, "My message will be that the life and death of Christ provides great hope, and that the essence of the Gospel is essentially his atonement."

Other local churches planned sermons and messages were also featured. The Reverend Thomas Cahalane of Our Mother of Sorrows Catholic Church added that he would be emphasizing the Jubilee year, marking the 2,000th anniversary of Christ's birth. When asked if the LDS church also had special plans for this monumental year, Bishop Sharp said that there was so special significance attached to the year 2000, except to say that, "Whenever we have an anniversary, it brings us back to the original event. That love that was demonstrated then is something we should remember and make meaningful in our lives."

Thomas Elam, LDS Bishop in Sahuarita, said he would not be speaking on Easter Sunday, but that two youth and two adult speakers from the congregation would be delivering talks. The theme for the sacrament meeting would be love.
