Christ is risen! Alleluia!!
I want to start by saying Thank You to so many people who made our Season of Lent and Easter so very wonderful.
From Peg and Nancy and those who helped them set up the sanctuary; to Chuck, Carol, Bill, Carolyn, Bev and all those who helped them to bring about the blessings of Maundy Thursday, Holy Friday and Easter breakfast; to Ashley, Joe, and all the choir members who dedicated themselves to music that connects; and yes, to John and his team and Diana for making sight and sound such a vital part of worship each week ... we give thanks! And there are many others to thank and we do thank you all! Please look around and thank someone who has been particularly special to your experience of the grace of God during Lent and Easter this year. And finally, the flowers (I hope) are beginning to think about popping their heads out. “Come on, you can do it!” And this means that our seasonal brothers and sisters will be returning. Super!
Spring is the time when I feel a new start coming on. In that light, I’m going to offer Disciple 1 – Becoming Disciples Through Bible Study
. This is one fantastic Bible study program! It really changed my outlook on Scripture and revealed a whole new understanding of God and our faith heritage.
Disciple 1 is a program in which participants read their Bibles daily, keep some notes, read some background information, and then meet weekly to watch a video and to share about what they’ve read, learned, and questioned … and to talk about how it all might apply to our lives and the world today.
