At the beginning of the Bible is a tree – a tree full of life! It is not the only thing in the garden. There
is also a tree full of the knowledge of good and evil. At the end of the Bible there is also a tree. This
tree is full of life as well. And in the middle, at the high point of the story, there is the tree of the cross
of Jesus Christ. On that tree, Jesus took the entire curse for our determination to do life on our own.
If, in your own life, you are experiencing more trouble than you are life and joy and wonder – then join
us on the trail to the tree this Lent. In this season of reflection, we will be traveling towards the tree of
the cross of our Savior. Because we believe that there is true life beyond that tree!
On Palm Sunday, our Chancel Choir will be leading us in a wonderful cantata. And on Easter
Sunday, we’ll have three worship services. The first will be at 6:30 A.M. in the Cemetery. And
the other two will be in the sanctuary – at 8:00 and 10:30 A.M. (Please note that while this is a
“5th Sunday where we have ordinarily had one worship service at 10:00 am, we will (for reasons of
Easter) have all of worship services.)
Blessings to you this Lent. I look forward to being with you as we travel towards to the tree of the
cross that leads us to the tree of life!
