Easter Week

This is the week we stop to think about Christ on the cross, sent by God, to die for our sins.  Maunday Thursday services last night, and Good Friday this evening and then the joyous Easter morning.  Jesus was discovered, not in the grave, but risen and alive and walking in the garden.
The youth at our Church did a reenactment of the Last Supper, and how it may have been.  Dressed in robes denoting the era, they sat around a table, and repeated the words that were said that night so many years ago.  They did a wonderful somber portrayal, with Judas being dismissed at the end, as he was that night.
It was sobering to watch and to remember the words of the Bible.
Holy Communion was then offered to the congregation, with the 3rd to 6th graders taking first communion with their families, after previously taking classes to learn what communion means....the Blood and Body of Christ.
My hope and prayer for all of these young people is for them to remember this night, hold it in their hearts as they face the world and their life in it.
