He is Risen! He is Risen Indeed!
What a month March was! Snowstorms punctuating every weekend; the cold of winter getting to us; the driving rain storms; and then there it was: the last day of March. Easter, or Resurrection day. For those that braved the early morning sunrise service, it was a beautiful sight. No storm, but a brilliant warm sun that blazed the sky and brought a warm day into the offing. March may have come in like a lion, but it was out like a lamb. It is so fitting that it was on this day we celebrated that Jesus, our Saviour and sacrificial lamb, rose from the dead. He is risen indeed!
At the Centre, we had an energetic crowd for our Easter service. Flags were flying as the children joined us in rejoicing and singing our praises to God. On Maundy Thursday, we offered communion on the downtown streets of New Bedford for the second year. While the number of people we encountered was much less than last year due to the hour and weather, we found that the responses were very much the same. We look forward to doing this at another time during the daylight hours to reach more people and offer them an opportunity to know the love of Christ.
Love 365. That’s what it’s all about. Sharing God’s love with everyone you know all of the time every day of the year. Come join the movement!
