Easter Eve

It's quiet here; really quiet. It hasn't been this quiet for a long time. The church has been in a Holy Week buzz for a long time. We hosted an M-4 supper and lecture by Dr. Richard Mouw in addition to all the other events.

But today the sanctuary was full and the music bright and excellent! Families gathered and a number of old (missing) friends returned. After the moving and intimate Maundy Thursday communion and foot washing service (where two friends gently washed my feet at the end of the evening, both blessing me and praying for me as they washed and dried) and the stark and powerful Good Friday tenebrae where the Christ candle was walked out of a totally dark sanctuary, today was high octane celebration. Lots of conversations, introductions, coffee, more conversations, more coffee, singing, preaching, more conversations, and even more coffee.

.......it's all good. Christ is risen! He is risen indeed!
