March 2018 Memo's (View/Download)

The Pastor's Pen

Blessed are they who gets the joke.

This is an unusual year. This year Ash Wednesday, fell on Valentines Day, which is very appropriate because on Ash Wednesday we celebrate the greatest love the world has ever know, or as John put it, "For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son that whoever believes in Him might not die, but have eternal life."

Easter this year Falls on April Fool's Day, which also has a kind of appropriateness to it. Paul tells us in I Corinthians 3, "If anyone thinks he is wise in this age let him become a fool, for the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God ... therefore let us be "fools for Christ's sake."

Our life on this planet is like a good news and bad news joke. The bad news is the God was crucified on a cross one black Friday afternoon. The good news is that Jesus was raised from the dead and that all who believe in him will never die, and that trumps it all. Blessed is he or she that gets that joke!

Here is the schedule for the remaining Sundays in Lent and for Holy Week.

Wednesday March 7: The Power of Forgiveness
