Together in spirit, as we approach Palm Sunday and the events of Holy Week... the Passion of our Lord and Savior gives us hope and courage to face the future unafraid.
During Holy Week, select a Gospel, and each day read what happened in Jesus' life that last week of his earthly life... IF possible, read it to a child!
On Palm Sunday, radio station WCFR here in Springfield will broadcast a message for Holy Week...
Come Easter, I will hold an ecumenical worship service of Resurrection down at the Connecticut River, beginning at sunrise - 6:00 AM. Share the news...
Call me if you would like to order a lily for a loved one... call me if you need anything 802-885-1916. IF possible send your pledge to Karen Therrien - United Methodist Church - 10 Valley Street... THANKS
A Prayer from the Conference:
Jesus, we praise and acknowledge that you are the Messiah. You are the one who has come to save us. We may be confused, burdened and even sick but we know that it is you that we need. You come to us, humble and yet a King. You reach out to us as we shelter in our homes, or as we serve where we are needed. Lord, we remember the events in the days before your Crucifixion. We know that you suffered as you showed us how to love. Teach us your way, O Lord. Teach us to love you and love each other even in the midst of our fear and our anxieties. Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord! Amen.
