From trivial to profound: Easter week

fiddler's green: From trivial to profound: Easter week

Dan reflects on our meeting yesterday and captures my thoughts exactly!

"Imagine churches coming together at Easter to cooperate, show unity, shelve competition and embrace the common joy of Christ crucified. A simple thing. But a profoundly counter-cultural act in an individualized, me-first, competitive world.

This week is Easter week. A week where we take a moment, and get the opportunity to lift our eyes from the trivial to the profound. To feast our souls on the extravagant love of God poured out on us through His Son Jesus Christ. It is time to stop what we normally do, and do what we need to do. It is time to sit and wonder; to sing and thunder; to rend asunder the idols of our hearts and rekindle the joy of our souls."
