As you can see I have posted readings for Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, and Easter Sunday. Often we neglect to pause to experience the descent into greatness that accompanies the descent into the darkness and death that precedes Easter with its joy of resurrection. When we do that we miss the full impact of the reality of Easter. In the same way our lives are filled with both triumph and tragedy but in the mist of it all God is present to cry with us, to rejoice with us and to guide and strengthen us along the way. I hope that you will be able to be with us as we gather as a community of faith to worship and remember in word and sacrament on Maundy Thursday at 8:00 PM and to walk through the darkness together on Good Friday at 8:00. Then return to worship on Easter Sunday ( at 10:00 AM) as we proclaim our joy in the hope and reality of resurrection. What a mighty God we serve!
