Easter Sunday is not a time of closure, but a time of opening up—of endless possibilities, infinite love, eternal life. We are opening up the church as well as our hearts, and I look forward to us coming together as a community in the celebration of God’s promise in the resurrected Christ. On Friday, I hope you’ll attend our Good Friday service at 7:00 p.m., where we consider, question, and cry out against the crucifixion then and still happening now. I hope you will pray on Holy Saturday, a time of observation and contemplation in what it means to die, what it means to rise, and what it means to be in between. And then Sunday—wow. We have a sunrise service at 7:00 a.m. We have an Easter breakfast at 9:30. We have an Easter Egg hunt at 10:15. We have worship starting at 11:00 a.m. And we will have folks we have never met, do not know, and are called to love sitting right there with us. I encourage you to be welcoming, I encourage you to be loving, I encourage you to be, well, who you are normally, but as a resurrection people, as together we proclaim the mystery of our faith: Christ is Risen.
I will see you Sunday! Shalom y’all,
