How would you answer these questions? Here are my ponderings. What is joy?Joy is an essential spice in life. Without joie de vivre life would be boring. Joy is the spark in the eye, the belly-laugh, the worriless well-being. Joy is contentment through hardships, hope when there is no visible reason for it. Who is Christ?Christ is the risen son of God who wants to re-connect us with our Creator and has made it possible through dying on the cross…
