It is my prayer that this Easter season is unveiling unexpected blessings in your lives.
As we inch a little closer to Sunday, I wanted to invite once again to join us for our online worship service. As we gather together around our screens, we will share a similar Order of Worship, which will include the singing of the hymn, “Christ is Alive!” . . . and since the lyrics are printed in this email, I hope that you will participate in lifting your voices in song –
Christ Is Alive
Christ is alive! Let Christians sing.
His cross stands empty to the sky.
Let streets and homes with praises ring.
Love, drowned in death, shall never die.
Christ is alive! No longer bound
to distant years in Palestine,
but saving, healing, here and now,
and touching every place and time.
Not throned above, remotely high,
untouched, unmoved by human pains
but daily, in the midst of life,
our Savior in the Godhead reigns
In every insult, rift, and war,
where color, scorn or wealth divide,
Christ suffers still, yet loves the more
and lives where even hope had died
Christ is alive, and comes to bring
Good news to this and every age,
till earth and sky and ocean ring
with joy, with justice, love, and praise.
Our Scripture will come from John 20:19-29.
Our meditation is entitled, “Learning from the Followers of . . . Elvis?”
If you have any prayer requests, please forward them to me in the next couple of days.
