A Pastoral Word
We continue to make our way along the journey of Lent and we continue to seek the Messiah. I want to say thank you to the worship committee and the choir for their hard work and creativity regarding our Lenten theme. When I first threw out this idea, we all weren’t sure how it would go but each week, we meet the Messiah in new and creative ways.
I have heard so many of you say how much you have enjoyed the combination of music and prayers. And that this series has deepened your faith. I think it is safe to say that Handel said it best through some very appropriate words that would also sum up our experience as well: “On composing Messiah, Handel is said to have remarked (1741), "I did think I did see all Heaven before me and the great God Himself."
As we continue our journey, I ask that you please keep those who are preparing for baptism this year in our church and in other churches as well in your thoughts and prayers and may they also see all heaven before them and the great God Himself during this very special time of faith.
