The days are getting warmer and everyone that I meet seems to think this is great thing. I find it interesting that some have expressed the dread, “There could be one more cold snap!” Sometimes there is and sometimes the “cold snap” is just around ten degrees cooler. It’s funny how some people continue to look for the gloom when they should be celebrating what’s happening today.
This Sunday we will be talking about the Last Supper which Jesus shared with his disciples. We could look at this event and think of it with dread - for we know the ending. Or do we? When I look at the Lenten season, I see a time of life. I could concentrate on death and all its morbid details, but I believe in a risen Christ – not a crucified one. Certainly death occurs, but that’s not the final story. The final story is eternal life – and that my friends, is a story of hope, of life and of God’s everlasting love. As we come to the Lord’s table, let us remember Jesus as a living Lord.
This blog consists of reflections written by the minister each week for the Sunday bulletin. We hope that you enjoy the musings!
