Greetings Crossroads Family,
I am well and ready to be released to full activity! It’s hard for me to hold back and not do the things the doctors warned me not to. I really love life! I appreciate your prayers and concerns. Thanks for being the best friends anyone could ask for.
Easter week is coming and it is important that you set aside the time necessary to read and prepare your hearts for the greatest event in the history of the world, the Resurrection of Christ. This Sunday I will be continuing the series on prayer, “Your Will be Done.” Reading from Matthew 20, I will take you down the dusty road from Jericho to Jerusalem, a 14-mile journey that takes Jesus to the cross. It’s an amazing story of a “man on a mission” to do the will of His Father. The life principles I will share are timeless truths that bring clarity to the purposes of God in our lives. Truly you don’t want to miss this teaching…it’s a keeper, and one you will treasure for a lifetime.
Janice has included in this Sunday’s bulletin, a reading guide for Easter week that will help you and your family follow the Easter story. Dorald has put together a program (she calls it a “drama”) for the Good Friday service at 7pm. She has shared with me a bit of her plan, but has kept most of it secret…..imagine that? Guess she thinks I’ll tell you too much? I can tell you this, she is excited and anticipating a special service that will leave you deeply moved.
Easter Sunday, Sarah and her team will be leading worship. They are young and very talented, but struggle with hymns, so George Miller will be with us to fill in the hymns. He has a powerful voice and will take the wallpaper off the walls using his opera voice to usher us before the resurrected KING OF KINGS and LORD OF LORDS. Freeda and her Hospitality Team will set tables between services at 8:45am and 10:15am with baked goods, fruit and Easter treats. I haven’t settled on a message yet, but that will come and I will be there challenging you to FOLLOW the KING! So all in all, it should be fun! I hope to see you there, and make sure you bring a friend.
Love to all,
