Greetings to you in the name of the risen Christ!

This week I have had time to reflect on how joyful and uplifting our Easter worship was. Several members mentioned feeling the same, and in particular still feeling as though they were floating on an emotional high days after. What a gift we have be given by God to be so filled with a joy that comes from outside of ourselves!

As many of you know, Easter is considered to be a liturgical season, spanning several weeks following Easter Sunday. As I reflected on worship last week and began to prepare for the coming weeks of worship, the season of Easter served as a reminder to me that the joy of Christ’s resurrection, the hope of salvation, and the love of God is something that is not and cannot be contained to a single day.

I pray that as we journey through the Easter season, we may continue to be filled with that joy, hope, and love.

Rev. Mary Kathryn Allen
