An Easter Message from Peter Holmes

 

Each Good Friday we sing the beautiful hymn, My Song is Love Unknown, which actually has more verses than we usually sing. When I visit with our guests at the Out of the Cold I sometimes find myself thinking of one of those unsung verses.

In life, no house, no home my Lord on earth might have;
In death, no friendly tomb but what a stranger gave.
What may I say? Heaven was his home;
but mine the tomb wherein he lay.

This is a poetic reminder that Jesus left his heavenly home and emptied himself completely that we might find our true home in God. The love of Christ is the wonderful and mysterious good news that we not only gather to celebrate on Good Friday and Easter but also have the privilege of sharing through the life and ministry of the church.

Our video provides a small glimpse into just one of the many ministries your gifts support and through which we are able to effectively communicate the love of Christ and bring hope and even transformation to many. You can make a difference by offering your gift online.

I look forward to welcoming you to worship on Good Friday at 11 a.m. and Easter Sunday at 8 a.m. and 11 a.m.

Have a wonderful and blessed Easter.
