Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
At the posting of this message, we are in the midst of Holy Week. During this special week it is easy to focus our energy and attention on the events that took place over 2000 years ago. It's easy to remember the last supper Jesus shared with the disciples when he said, “This is my body broken for you, take and eat.” It's easy to picture three crosses “On a Hill Far Away.” It's easy to remember that Easter is the day we celebrate “Christ the Lord Is Risen Today.”
This is also the season when it is easy to get so caught up in the Easter festivities that we focus on the family and friends we will be spending time with, the Easter baskets we will fill, and making sure there will be an equal distribution of jelly beans!
