FROM THE PASTOR'S DESK
As you receive this newsletter, we as a church are entering Holy Week. You are invited to step
through the gate and follow Jesus on his journey to the cross.
Listen to Maundy Thursday's promises of Jesus very presence in wine and bread coursing in
us and through us as we serve others just as he first served us.
Join us as children from St. Paul's as they receive first communion, joining the faithful in the
gift of Jesus who give all of himself to us, his body, his blood, so we can rest the promise of
everlasting life and forgiveness.
Encounter Good Friday as we live into Jesus’ sacrifice and love as we journey with him to the
cross and to his death.
Experience the Joy of Easter morning and the promise of resurrection which brings life and
forgiveness to the world.
I would like to share some beautiful words by Nancy Clair Pittman as she paints a stunning picture of Easter Morning
“The colorful baskets are prepared, loaded with trinkets, candy, and chocolate bunnies, and
tucked away in a corner of the closet. The plastic and the dyed eggs have been sorted and hidden in age-appropriate levels of difficulty. The new clothes are all laid out on the backs of chairs. The ham sits in the refrigerator between the green bean casserole and the deviled eggs. In the sanctuary the white lilies line the steps of the chancel. The candles wait unlit on the altar. It is Easter morning, before the children have awakened, before the most faithful attenders have arrived for the sunrise service, before the [instruments] have been tuned, the choir warmed up, the baptistery filled. Not a single alleluia has been shouted or chocolate bunny consumed. The congregation has not sung “Jesus Christ Is Risen Today.” In this stillness is found the moment of resurrection. In the dim light before dawn, in the moment before the birds begin to sing, something quiet happens. Unnoticed and unwitnessed by human eyes and ears. Just a stone rolling away from the opening of a cave; a breath of wind stirring in a cemetery. Jesus lives. And with him we live. Alleluia. 1”
May the peace of God, the love of Jesus, and the Holy Spirit who brings us hope, rest in your
hearts as you sit in the stillness of God’s grace and Love.
God bless you all!
