God is my conscience, Jesus lives in my heart… this blog is about what I see, what I think, what I do and how I serve God
Thinking Towards Sunday; 23-February-2014
17 February 2014Posted by on
The traditions and meaning of Easter go back for centuries and they are rooted in the enslavement of Hebrews in Egypt, the lives and ministry of Moses and Joshua, forty years of wandering in the desert, the conquest of Canaan, as well as the ministry, teachings, death and resurrection of Jesus and subsequent ministry of his Disciples stretching all the way to our times and our interactions with God and with each other.
As we are preparing for Easter this year, I would like to take some time to talk about the traditions and symbols of Easter. This Sunday we will continue to explore the connection between Easter and Passover; we will look at the plagues of Egypt and at the origins of Passover. In this series of messages we will connect these events with the life and ministry of Jesus, and we will talk about what the Resurrection really means to each of us individually, and to the fellowship of Christ United Methodist Church as a community. If you have any questions that you would like to be addressed in this series, please e-mail them to me and I will do my best to address them. Also, invite your friends and neighbors to church so that all of us can share and participate in the blessing and the promise of Easter.
Scripture for this Sunday is: Exodus 12:1-14
You can read it here: NIV2010
