Are we people of the Word?
What a great Second Sunday of Easter! Worship in the morning worship services reminded us of the ongoing significance of Easter. Sermon text: Luke 24:13–35, the story of the two disciples walking from Jerusalem to Emmaus. And Jesus joins them, explaining the Scriptures (Old Testament) that point to him:
Then he began with Moses’ Teachings and the Prophets to explain to them what was said about him throughout the Scriptures. (Luke 24:27)
Then Jesus revealed the full import of who he is and what he has done.
[He] opened up the meaning of the Scriptures for us. (Luke 24:32)
Then last night we hosted the Easter Cantata, “Such Love.” The theme song was written by Val Kaltov. The Cantata covered Good Friday through Easter Sunday. What a wonderful night of music and Scripture narrative! All music and words were written by people on Frazier Mountain; they were excellent. And the singing and playing of instruments was top notch.
And we had an overflowing crowd, standing room only and then more. Watch for further details on our church web site, for photos, etc.
Thanks to Val and Allie for organizing, leading, coordinating this superb sharing of the central message of the Christian faith.
