Grace to you and peace, from God our Creator and the Lord Jesus Christ! On this glorious Saturday morning, looking forward to an equally beautiful Easter Sunday, we have much to be thankful for. That said, there is no moment in which someone we love is not hurting about something. Suffering as part of our human experience is inevitable, but so is the promise of renewal, of healing, of rebirth. The depth of these truths has been profoundly expressed in the services of this Holy Week and the joy God promises is something we share tomorrow. We gather at 5:30 at the parking lot at the Hayes Trail on Blue Hill Mountain for our sunrise service. Deep thanks to Stu Davis for playing opening music on guitar and to Hunt Gressitt (and her roadie, Robert) for playing her portable organ for our singing! It will be a cold morning, but brilliant in the light of hope!
At 10:00, we worship again in the sanctuary, and are grateful to Clair Maxwell for offering an organ postlude. And always, we thank Ann Boudreaux for her leadership of our choir and other musicians, as well as keeping our worship tech running smoothly. Friends, in the face of despair, we have hope. In the midst of pain, we have healing. Let us celebrate together!
Yours in faith and hope, Lisa
