Dear Church Family,
This spring has been so beautiful. It came early, and I hope it sticks around awhile before giving way to summer’s heat.
And now Easter is here, or at least soon will be. I hope it sticks around awhile too before giving way to end of school year schedules and summer plans.
The thing about Easter– it always sticks around. Jesus lives. He is risen! He isn’t going anywhere. He forever promises
to meet those who call upon him in spirit and in truth. It’s us who have problems sticking around–sticking close.
So let me try to lure you in. “Spirit and truth.” Jesus said that. He said that to the woman at the well about the kind of worshippers the Father seeks. The Apostles’ Creed sermons have been focused on building a foundation of truth–those essential truths that bind Christians of various stripes together.
Beginning the Sunday after Easter (April 23), I will be preaching a series focused on Spirit. The resource for that is the preeminent source for Christian spirituality– The Lord’s Prayer. I need it. So do you. So stick around– Easter is a year round thing.
