The Resurrection of Our Lord!
On Our Way Rejoicing
Dearly Redeemed, Dearly Beloved Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
What a pleasure it is to write these words! Because they are so very true. It is the message of Easter! It is the promise of our baptism! It is pure grace and mercy, coming from God's never ending, always present love.
I've been thinking a lot about Easter. We know the story. And we gather together every Sunday to celebrate the Good News of Easter--Jesus was raised from the dead, so nothing in this life, nor nothing in the next can separate us from the love of God, in Christ Jesus our Lord! Absolutely nothing!
So then, what is our response to Easter? For me, Easter is life changing. It defines how I am to live my life, who I am to live for, and how I am to respond to others. I am the first to admit I don't always do this very well, but I find comfort in knowing that God forgives me those things I have done and those things I have left undone; those people I have paid attention to and those people I have ignored; the national and world issues I have attended to and those I haven't. But it doesn't mean that after forgiveness, I am to continue along on the same path. I am to change my ways.
Mid-Week Lenten Gatherings
Join us each Wednesday in Lent, beginning on Wednesday, March 8 through Wednesday, April 5 as we gather in the fellowship hall at 6 pm for a light supper, short meditation time, prayer, activity and song. On March 8, we will learn a little poem that will help us remember the learnings for each week. It will be fun, interactive, and for all ages! Looking forward to sharing this special time together!
