The very first Easter taught us this:
that life never ends and
love never dies.
– Kate McGahan
On this beautiful Easter Sunday
let us share love and light with everyone.

“After Your Son lay three days in a dark hole,
you turned the darkest Friday into the brightest Sunday.”
– Max Lucado
“Do not abandon yourselves to despair.
We are the Easter people and
hallelujah is our song.”
– Pope John Paul II
“Our Lord has written the promise of resurrection,
not in books alone,
but in every leaf in springtime.”
― Martin Luther
Pastor: “You need to join the Army of the Lord!”
Parishioner: “I’m already in the Army of the Lord, Pastor.”
Pastor: “How come I don’t see you except at Easter and Christmas?”
Parishioner : “I’m in the secret service.”
Some cannot say it – despite how they feel.
And way down inside, you’ll find at the core,
that few can love higher than dog fleas soar.
There are many words and so many styles.
Some share their feelings with tears in one eye,
while others share thoughts in endless supply.
than walking the talk, and ‘doing’ instead.
When we are confronted with our simple trials,
do we drag our cross and for how many miles?
We wish every time it would just disappear;
but if our love’s real – and fills us inside,
A cross surely conquers when we are denied.
For there was a Man that lived long ago,
who gave so much more – than we’ll ever know.
He shared with the children, women and men,
and taught us all how – to love once again
but rather, instead, of unselfish walk.
While prayers were sincere to His Father above,
mere words didn’t finish His dutiful love.
and faithfully walked each step all alone.
We cannot imagine the pain He endured,
and from the soldiers, the scoffing He heard.
but actions spoke louder than two timbers crossed.
For love did not lose to the cross in that war –
-because Jesus yet lives and that cross is no more.
– Louis Gander
We hold so close to our hearts
The cross where Jesus died
But so much more than the blood-stained cross
Is that Jesus came back to life
The stone’s been rolled away
The tomb lay open and bare
They looked for Him, and then the angel said
That He is no longer here
Oh what joy they must have felt
To see Him just once more
To eat with Him, to drink with Him
To receive Him back as Lord
So much did He accomplish
Through His death upon the cross
And in His rising from the dead
He reconciled us back to God
Nothing else could bridge the gap
That sin had wrenched apart
Now we can freely go to God
And receive Christ in our hearts
