I am pretty sure that we have something in common – there are weeks that feel like you’ve been in the boxing ring with Rocky Marciano, Floyd Patterson, Mohammed Ali and Michael Tyson - all beatin’ up on you. (I think I covered most of our generations with the names of those boxers, tell me if I’m wrong.)
I have great news – Sunday is coming. Sunday is not just about fulfilling an obligation and going to church. Sunday is about resurrection. Sunday is about being still and knowing that God is God and that all things, even the worst things, will work out. Sunday is about discovering the rich new life that is just beneath the surface of whatever it is we call “reality.” Sunday is about celebrating a kingdom come and a will being done on earth, in this life, as it is in heaven. Sunday is about a new you and me…and a new world.
This Sunday one of our newest members will serve as liturgist. This Sunday the choir will sing out one of most loved songs. This Sunday we will read the story of what it means to show compassion where most people would show fear. This Sunday we will read about a person making a bold stand in the face of death.
This Sunday will be enriched by you being with us.
See you in church!
PS. As a reminder – we will have a long-awaited Q and A about a proposed building renovation. So worship with us at 11:00. Go to the lounge, grab a cup of coffee and one of Lorraine’s delicious treats and join us in the Gathering Place. I look forward to sharing the morning with you.
I write to you looking at a very drippy day…but the sunshine is comin’! And so is the shine of the son. The resurrection is not only something that happened to Jesus that radically changed his way of life. But the disciple changed their way of living too. Join us Sunday morning and find out how. More great songs….the same lovely congregation of the faithful – and maybe some new people too!
See you Sunday
At the break of dawn, a bird sings.
The long night of darkness is over.
The stone is rolled away.
The tomb is empty.
The sun begins to shine.
The Son has risen!
It’s a morning of glory,
THIS MORNING – 11:00 A.M.
SEE YOU IN CHURCH – BRING YOUR SINGING VOICES….and your friends…
