Easter/Resurrection Sunday

Posted: March 25, 2021 in Uncategorized

We’re about two weeks from what is the most important day of the year for Christians, Easter Sunday. Now I know Christmas is more popular by far than Easter, and Easters meaning tends to get lost in bunnies, and chicks and eggs and chocolate, but the truth is. The purpose of Christmas is God Friday and the purpose of Good Friday is Easter. Easter is the day we celebrate an empty tomb and a risen Lord. It is the say we celebrate Christ’s victory over hell and death and the grave. In the celebration of Christ’s resurrection, we look forward to our own resurrection, when we will be made complete and perfect forever. 

Yes Easter is tremendously important, and since most of us missed Easter Worship in person worship last year due to COVID, what are you going to do to make this easter extra special for your congregation. I want to try to create a new painting project that will sum up the meaning of the day to go with my Easter message. How will you use your creative gifts to tell your church and the world beyond about the risen Lord. I’m working on a few ideas but I would love to see what you have come up with. 

Jesus is risen. Let’s celebrate and the best way to celebrate the resurrection is to be found faithful helloing people to find Jesus and their redemption in Him. How will you express the risen Lord?
