He Is Risen! Come to Him.

   The Resurrection of Our Lord, Easter Day, is an exciting time for the Church.

   We try to be at our best for this central celebration.  Visitors and irregulars boost our attendance.  The crowds are energizing!

   Then the Sunday after Easter happens.  Where did everybody go?

   Certainly spring breaks and vacations play into this.  But, still.

   The first Easter was even worse.

   The disciples were in disarray.  The crowds didn’t know what had happened.  The event passed relatively quickly and quietly.

   And yet, it happened.  It happened for a fearful uncomprehending people.  It happened for an indifferent consumerist people.

   It happened for us.

   Lay down the burden of your sin and know Jesus.  "Come to me, all you that are weary and are carrying heavy burdens, and I will give you rest" Jesus said.  Matthew 11:28

   Every Sunday is a little Easter.  Keep celebrating!

   Christ has died!  Christ Is Risen, for us all!  Come to Him now and live.
