Good morning and blessings to all of  you and  those you love ,

One of my favorite hymns is “Tell Me the Stories of Jesus” written by William Parker in 1885.

As the stories come alive each day for all of us, we need to remember that all of  the stories of our Lord are words for us to hear, learn and share.  As a pastor, each Sunday from the pulpit  I want so much for God’s Word to be fresh from the Gospel stories that have been shared for thousands of years.

The weekly search for an original insight, for a new way of presenting the “Good News” at Easter,  was always difficult until my faith brought me to a conclusion.  And the conclusion for me, and just maybe for all of us, is a renewed understanding  that Jesus  Christ needs to be BORN AGAIN each day of our lives and not just on Easter morning.

During this Easter Season, I pray that you will bring family and friends to worship, so the Story of Jesus will be kept alive in your hearts, minds and souls.  Palm Sunday Service, in YOUR church will be at 10:30 AM.  Maundy Thursday Service will begin at 7:00 PM.  On Good Friday, the church (Your Church) will be open for prayer and meditation from 11 AM to 1PM.  On Easter morning, we will join at our Outdoor “Cross in the Meadow” for the Sunrise Service at 8:15 AM.  The service be followed by an Easter Breakfast in Fellowship Hall.  And thanks be to God, we will Worship in our newly carpeted Sanctuary celebrating the Good News of Jesus Christ at 10:30 AM.

Come and worship during the Easter Season, for this is a time that I can’t wait to share the “STORY OF JESUS” with each of you.

God Bless You.

See you Sunday,

Pastor Jim
