Bible Verse of the Day

Happy Easter!

Easter is the most important season of the Christian calendar and as such it gets a huge celebration at church. Ours was no different this morning. We had a sunrise service at 6:30 this morning, which was very nice. It was lead by the youth and the message was inspiring. The pastor's daughter did the homily and she pointed out that growing up, when she wanted to learn about Jesus, it was from the Bible in the context of history, but she realized that Jesus is not just in the past, but comes to meet us from the future. How profound is that from a 16 year old?

Our next two services were filled with an amazing amount of music of many different styles. We had a choral and brass call to worship, a brass quartet piece, the praise music with band (including the brass guys, a flute, a clarinet, and myself on sax). We really rocked "Did You Feel The Mountain Tremble." Then we had a choral offeratory, and the final hymn was with brass, woodwind, organ (with a new console), rhythm, and choir and congregation. It was just beautiful and grand.

I don't know how, or even if, you celebrate Easter, but I hope that you were able to enjoy this special day of resurrection and hope for the future.
