It’s Almost Easter
Yes, last week we were thinking about passing out candles on Christmas Eve. Now, we’re anticipating arranging flowers and lilies for Easter. Wow!
Holy Week is one of the most important times in the life of the Christian community. I hope this finds you having walked the Lenten road of discipline, reflection, and sacrifice. I also hope you’re looking forward to encountering Christ in some new way during this Holy Week.
Here’s an overview of the many ways you can walk with Jesus, from Maundy Thursday through Easter morning. Also, please be sure to visit the Stations of the Cross Art Installation, found in the marble entranceway off the north parking lot; this is a moving display by congregational artists.
I’m very much looking forward to bringing the Easter message to you during our Sunday morning services. My sermon is titled, “The Big Empty,” and is based on Luke 24:1-12. If you’d like to get a sneak preview of the image I’ll be using, put on your science hat and click here.
Have a blessed Holy Week!

As I mentioned in last week’s eblast, following Easter I’m going to do a series of sermons on the world of a child. It’s titled, “Revisiting Childhood.” I would greatly appreciate you sending me any real-life stories you might have regarding childhood. This could be memories of your own, memories of children/grandchildren, or other friends and relatives. Please email me ; I’d love to read them! If I use any in a sermon, of course, I would share them anonymously. Thanks!
