Easter Weekend 2009 part 1

I just love it when a plan comes together. I love it even more when I am allowed to be "on the inside" as the plan is laid out.
Last night, we observed the Lord's Supper and the choir led worship. I do not believe anyone attending the service could have possibly walked away saying that they went to Pearson's "Easter Cantata" or "Choir Special" or "Easter Musical". Last night was so much more than an "Easter program".
The powerful message of the Cross was overwhelming as we watched Christ be crucified while the Choir sang "He Chose the Cross". The entire service lead up to the Lord's Supper and by that time, I know I was not the only one who was overcome with the enormity of Christ's sacrifice and the sacredness of His command to "Remember" each time we partake of the bread and the wine.
There was a spirit of reverence and of awe last night that I have not experienced in ages. I truly believe that we were there to meet Christ last night, and we did.
For those that know Joshua and Calvin, and for those that feel committed to pray for God's Leaders, please pray fervently for them. Things are happening in our little church. There is excitement in our church family. I do not expect Satan to sit idly by and allow our sweet little congregation to grow. Please pray with me that our leaders will continue to keep Christ first and that they will not allow Satan to discourage them.
Happy Easter!
Hugs,
