From the blog this week: A Different Kind of Easter Sunday
“Over and over again, Scripture shows us how Jesus interacted with people— people with hopes, dreams, hurts, and disappointments. We’ll hear what Jesus said to those who welcomed him and wanted him, as well as to those who rejected him and ridiculed him. We’ll also get a sense of what Jesus wants from us and what he offers to us.”
“When was the last time you weren’t busy? When was the last time you stopped and delighted in the fact that God runs the world and you don’t? When was the last time you were present to a moment without thinking about “the next thing” on your schedule?”
“Early on, this isolation felt like a reprieve from our formerly busy schedules… The emptied calendar was a welcome respite. I welcomed the quietness of a long, unhurried day that would be replicated again and again.
But a month into this, and I’m beat.”
