Good News Is for Sharing

For Angie and me, this Easter has been the most significant and meaningful we have had in many years. Indeed, throughout the weeks of Lent, Holy Week, and especially on Easter, thanks to the Holy Spirit working through the blessing of your many gifts and talents, the joy of the Resurrection permeated our lives and our experiences together. Thank you for being part of it. When you have been with the Risen Lord, you can’t help but be changed and grow. You can’t help but become a church who loves God and who lets God love others through you. Thank you, Freemason Street, for being that kind of church.

This Sunday, April 23, will be another singular opportunity to celebrate and share the good news of Christ’s love as we gather for worship in the morning and to hear the Norfolk Street and FSBC Choirs sing in the afternoon. As Christians, we are called to join God where God is at work. God is at work through the music ministry outreach of FSBC, and in a powerful way. Come early on Sunday afternoon. Help us welcome our guests and encourage our choirs as we celebrate the transformational work God is doing through these ministries.

God is at work in the world. God is at work in the church. God is at work in you. Thanks be to God!

Grace and peace,

P.S. The news article and video about the Norfolk Street Choir in last Sunday’s edition of the Virginian-Pilot generated many positive responses from around the community and around the country. Help share this good news by passing along this link to the article:

Seeing Jesus, Again

John 20:19-31

Maundy Thursday
We remember one who loved us well,
Shared our life, its joy and sorrow,
Walked among us as the least of all,
Gave himself into our keeping,
He is light that dawns for blinded eyes,
He is hope for the despairing;
All on earth can find a place with him,
Saint and sinner at his table.
from Song of the Lord's Supper by M. Joncas

Good Friday
Surely he has borne our infirmities
and carried our diseases;
yet we accounted him stricken,
struck down by God, and afflicted.
But he was wounded for our transgressions,
crushed for our iniquities;
upon him was the punishment that made us whole,
and by his bruises we are healed.
All we like sheep have gone astray;
we have all turned to our own way,
and the Lord has laid on him
the iniquity of us all.
from Isaiah 53
