Reach Out During Holy Week
As we move through Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, and Easter Sunday, how can you be a servant to someone else? Who needs to hear from you on Maundy Thursday that this is the day when Jesus gave us the new commandment to love one another? Who needs to hear from you on Good Friday that Jesus forgave his accusers? And who needs to hear from you the words, “He is risen!” on Easter Sunday?
God's Love Never Ends
In the midst of our lamentation for our world and its people, we claim the promises of God...God's love never ends; God's mercy is forever; God's great faithfulness is fresh every day.
God's Love is Faithful
Even when times are bad and the coronavirus continues to spread through our world, prompting all of us to change and adapt in order to help others and protect ourselves; even when hopes and dreams are dashed for the short term; still God’s love is faithful and good. And even on April Fool’s Day, God’s extravagant grace sustains and upholds us because we, too, are fools for Christ.
