Pastor's Note

Easter Sunday has come and gone, but Easter is not over. In fact, the Season of Easter goes until we celebrate Pentecost on May 20th. Many of you may know this, but I also find it important to point out this fact. Our culture seems so quick to move from one holiday to the next, and forget that many of them (especially the religious ones) are part of a longer season of observation.

So, what does that mean for us? Well, a few things. First and foremost, the resurrection is something that is ongoing, not a singular event. During the days following the discovery of the empty tomb, Jesus revealed himself to the disciples and continued to teach until he ascended to heaven. This is important for us, to remember what he told the disciples during this time. He did not stick around after the resurrection to do miracles, or go back to the way things were before he was crucified. He used that time to make sure the disciples knew it was there job to carry on the work, to spread the Gospel, and attest to what God was doing new for God's people.

That's what our Easter time is still about for us. We are like the disciples, called to realize the continued resurrection and go out and share that we too, "Have seen the Lord! He is risen!"

Grace and Peace,
Pastor Zach
