Good Friday Service Invitation

Good Friday Service Invitation

Dear (INSERT NAME),

When I was a child, I was always confused by the phrase “Good Friday.” Usually, we don’t look upon the death of a loved one and call it “good.”  On the contrary, we grieve and mourn for the loss of life. That being said, how could the day of our Savior’s violent death be called good? Logged in Members, CLICK HERE to view full text!

Maundy Service Invitation Letter

Dear (INSERT NAME),

Maundy Thursday is approaching. The term Maundy comes from the Latin word mandatum, or commandment—but what does this have to do with Maundy Thursday?

As the circumstances of Holy Week continue to grow dark and intense, it’s easy to forget which event happened on which day.  Logged in Members, CLICK HERE to view full text!

Encouragement to Fast During Lent

Dear (INSERT NAME)

Each year, as Lent approaches, many Christians find themselves asking what they should “give up for Lent.”  Though it is not mandatory for a Protestant believer to do so, it has become a tradition in many denominations to fast or abstain from something (food, vices, or other daily enjoyments).

Dear (INSERT NAME),

Even though I’m a fan of technology, it seems like there’s no escaping it, even if you wanted to.  In our modern, digital world, it’s easy to work around the clock:  our cell phones are always on and everyone expects their text messages and emails to be answered instantaneously.  Logged in Members, CLICK HERE to view full text!

Dear (INSERT NAME HERE),

The Psalms are filled with some of the most beautiful, most heart-wrenching, and most personal words in all of Scripture.  Many of you have shared with me how the book of Psalms is one of your favorites, and I would like to share with you a psalm that has caught my attention as of late: Logged in Members, CLICK HERE to view full text!

Importance of Observing Lent

Importance of Observing Lent 

Dear (INSERT NAME)

Grace and peace to you as we embark on a journey of reflection, meditation, worship, and service over the course of the next several weeks.

The Lenten season differs in many ways from the Advent season: we don’t have a hanging of the greens, we don’t sing carols, and instead of anticipating the birth of the Christ child, we prepare ourselves for His death and resurrection.    Logged in Members, CLICK HERE to view full text!

Dear (INSERT NAME),

For I have chosen him, so that he may command his children and his household after him to keep the way of the LORD by doing righteousness and justice, so that the LORD may bring upon Abraham what He has spoken about him. –Genesis 18:19

For Christians, Easter is one of the biggest holidays of the year; however, we don’t always host the same kind of family engagements at Easter time as we do for the winter holidays. Logged in Members, CLICK HERE to view full text!

Importance of Lent

Dear (INSERT NAME),

As you stroll through the local stores, you’ll see an abundance of bunnies, baskets, and candy for sale, and those may be the only signs of Easter you’ll find outside of church. Unlike its Christmas counterpart, Easter is largely uncommercialized, which is pretty wonderful: the day that we celebrate the glory of Christ’s resurrection remains untainted by retailers.

Dear (NAME),

“To grant to those who mourn in Zion— to give them a beautiful headdress instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning, the garment of praise instead of a faint spirit; that they may be called oaks of righteousness, the planting of the Lord, that he may be glorified.”—Isaiah 61: 3

A faint spirit, the oil of mourning, the ashes of grief—God promises to deliver us from these. What a blessing it is to serve a God who turns the sorrow of grief into a time of praise! Logged in Members, CLICK HERE to view full text!
