What an amazing Easter weekend we experienced! The Good Friday Service was so moving and personal. We learned about the last 7 "words" of Christ from the cross. I was surprised at the emotion that met me as I contemplated those last thoughts Christ shared. After that, Karen delivered a monologue as a person witnessing the crucifixion and coming to the realization that without that death, without that horrendous act, there is no salvation for any of us. We have to join our voices with the crowd in shouting, "crucify!" or else we are lost. Powerful, humbling thoughts as we took communion together.
Saturday we joined our church in the Eggspedition outreach to our community. We worked the putt putt booth, while the boys worked in the concessions area. We never really have a hunt--it's more like a vacuum! We watched as 12,000 eggs disappeared in under 90 seconds. It was great fun! Then we had good friends here for dinner that night.
