#1 - We look forward to gathering with you this Palm Sunday. We are examining at the Meaning of Jesus and joining the conversation with the writer Luke as he describes the night Jesus was betrayed by his friends (Luke 22:39-64) It's interesting, there is a theme of light and dark in this story, there is a darkness that blind our heart, mind and soul. Jesus came to deal with that darkness, and it is good news.
#2 - Join us for Good Friday gathering at 7 pm on April 18th. We will experience the power of Jesus and his work on the cross. It will be a contemplative gathering, that will include a time of reflection, meditation, and the Lord's Table.
#3 - We will have two gatherings on Easter Sunday, April 20, at 10am and 11:30am. Please invite freinds, co-workers, and family for a day of celebration. Our talk that day will be to examine, the power, doubt, and joy of Jesus' resurrection. I speak to many people who have many doubts about the resurrection of Jesus, even those who believe.
"I think the trouble with me is lack of faith. I have no rational ground for going back on the arguements that convinced me of God's existence: but the irrational deadweight of my old skeptical habits, and the spirit of this age, and the cares of the day, steal away all my lively feeling of the truth, and when I pray I wonder if I am not posting letters to a non existent address. Mind you I don't think so--the whole of my reasonable mind is convinced: but I often feel so."
~C.S. Lewis in a letter to his friend Arther Greeves.
#4 - I have been praying for Seattle and my neighbors daily for the past month. I love this city and I am grateful for the Good News of Jesus and the Holy Spirit who transforms lives. I am also grateful for the people of All Saints Church who are living out our vision to make the city better. Thank you for being such a creative and passionate church!
See you Sunday.
