Resurrection Sunday Letter 2014 (2)

Dear INSERT NAME,

Have you heard the good news?   Well, yes, winter is finally over, and yes, all of your favorite sweet treats are currently stocked on all the grocery stores’ shelves, but it’s even better than that—yes, even better than the Cadbury Crème Eggs and Peeps.  Oh, but it goes far deeper than that!

“Don’t be alarmed,” he said. “You are looking for Jesus the Nazarene, who was crucified. He has risen! He is not here. See the place where they laid him.”

–Mark 16:6

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.

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!

Easter Cantata Musical Invitation

Dear Mr. and Mrs. Smith:

He is not here, He is risen! Luke 24:2 recounts the story of the empty tomb.

Can you imagine an empty tomb where a dead body once lay? A huge stone was rolled away and all that was left was an empty tomb. Logged in Members, CLICK HERE to view full text!
