Alleluia, Christ Is Risen, Christ Is Risen Indeed

Pastor's Corner

Eastertide blessings!

Did you feel that? Do you hear that? What is that? What's happening? These are not the thoughts that ran through me the day of the earthquake. These are thoughts that have been coursing through me over the past few months.

There is an energy, a spirit blowing, a lifting of our souls! This has been noticed from the sharing of the peace, the fellowship taking place after worship, as well as the exchange of ideas for the care of our congregation as well as the physical property. 

The phrase, "the spirit" is found 218 times in the Bible. The Spirit does things: gives, stirs, comes, puts, moves, lifts, speaks, leads, guides, fills. "The wind blows where it chooses, and you hear the sound of it, but you do not know where it comes from or where it goes. So it is with everyone who is born of the Spirit.” John 3:8. The Spirit is moving in this space - this I believe!

And to all of this I can only ask. What do you feel? What do you hear? What do you see? I'm curious... what are you noticing? Reach out. I'd really like to know.

Blessings,
Pastor JJ
