Pastor’s Pen 14th April 2019

Shalom. Allow the truth of Easter to inform the reality of your today.
We are rapidly heading into the Easter weekend and this Sunday sees us celebrating Palm Sunday. Stop and think about that… we celebrate Easter… we celebrate the anniversary of Jesus death… his torture and execution at the hands of a colonial oppressor, the Roman Empire. We celebrate the betrayal of our Lord at the hands of one of his own disciples. 
Celebrate? That’s a bit strange isn’t it? 
Well, not really… because we know that’s not the end of the story… in fact we know the story is still being written.
… This “letter” is written not with pen and ink, but with the Spirit of the living God. It is carved not on tablets of stone, but on human hearts. 2 Corinthians 3:3 NLT

The true message of Easter is that faith, hope and love will never run out, will never die… because it is embodied by and in Jesus. He is now resurrected and seated at the right hand of God the Father. 
His story becomes our history and helps write our future. 
I hope that you will enjoy the coming Passion week. If you’re involved in Day Camp, I pray you enjoy your time.

Pastor Mike
