It slips up on us each year. “You mean Christmas is only 2 weeks away?” we ask, incredulous that time has passed so quickly. We say the same about the new year, a graduation, a birthday – especially the ones where a child now looks us in the eye or down at us.
Holy Week and Easter come unexpectedly, too. And when they are packed into the windy month of March, they are particularly surprising. We are pondering forgiveness during Lent, as we recall that the God who is “gracious and merciful” has made our forgiveness indelible through the cross of Christ Jesus. That divine and precious work opens the floodgates for us to have life anew. By the cross God inspires in us a willingness to bend our knees in service to others, all so our loving Lord is glorified and honored.
Holy Week & Easter Worship

Holy Week – from Palm/Passion Sunday through each blessed day – we hear the story through which we all are saved. It is a busy season and a full week. Schools are even on spring break. But let us all carve out, set aside these special days and evenings to experience the goodness of God at work, from creation to re-creation. Bring friends to share in the mystery, power and joy of these holy days!
