Let Go of Fear

On the evening of the first Easter, the disciples of Jesus were still afraid.  That morning some of them had seen the empty tomb. And Mary Magdalene had told them that she had seen the risen Lord in the garden.  But it was not until Jesus appeared to them (see John 20:19-25) that they were able to let go of their fears.  Jesus blessed them with the gift of peace and his Holy Spirit.  They were able to let go of their fears and “face everything and rise!”

p.s. It is great to be back worshipping in the sanctuary on Sundays.  Our attendance was 45 on Palm Sunday (3/28) and 60 on Easter (4/4)
