As I was browsing Facebook on Sunday afternoon, I enjoyed seeing many of my friends and colleagues posting statuses of great relief and joy as Holy Week and Easter concluded. I too felt that relief. After all, from Palm Sunday through Easter Sunday, we offered sixteen services here at the church! I estimate that over 100 people helped in various ways, whether it was by decorating the sanctuary and Wesley Hall, providing breakfast for devotions, or singing in the choir. You get the picture. That said, it would be impossible to thank everyone individually for their dedication, so I will not dare make that attempt! However, if you are among those that helped, please accept a hearty thank you and know that I speak on behalf of a grateful congregation.
While Easter Sunday is over, the truth is the celebration has just begun! The season of Easter lasts for 50 days and will conclude on Pentecost Sunday, May 20. Alleluia! Let us keep the feast.
