Spring is here, a time of new beginnings. Lent continues as we prepare for Easter – a time when the impossible becomes possible.
There are so many things going on in the world right now. With spring, we have new birth, new growth, and the world is turning green around us yet again. This is a time of hope. Hope for the future, hope for what is to come.
It can be hard to find that hope when we see flooding and destruction, when we see people disagreeing and arguing with one another, and with policies and laws being passed that cause harm to God’s people.
And yet we are a people of hope. We believe in our risen Christ and know that there is something more to this life that we live. Our time of waiting will come to an end, and we have cause to celebrate.
We walk on this journey of life together day in and day out. We need one another to lift us up when we need a hand, to commiserate through the rough moments, to support and encourage, and to cheer us on when we have things to celebrate. In short, we need each other. We need our church community. We may not always agree on everything, but we still need each other. If in doubt, just listen and be there for one another.
Invite a friend to join us in our community and join us on Easter as we celebrate together!
