It's Palm Sunday! If you've been around awhile, you know it's one of my favorite Sundays of the year. We'll start outside, weather permitting, with our palms and process in -- always a fun activity for all ages! This service will include poems and prayers, an inspiring message about being the change we want to see, and music. There's also a little something else I have up my sleeve, but that will remain a secret until you get here. (Hint: it may be a little outside your comfort zone, but most people find it very moving if they're willing to take part.)
Also, don't forget to sign-up for Maundy Thursday meal and worship -- it will make your Easter more meaningful!
And EASTER! Do not be bashful about inviting people to Easter worship. Lives can and do change because of the hope the Easter message offers. But, no matter how meaningful and powerful the Easter story is, it begins with you. Your invitation. Your willingness to invite another person and invite them to come and see what you've found meaningful is where it begins and how the church will grow. You're the one who first engages people. Your enthusiasm, your energy, and your participation in the life of Faith Des Peres is what makes the church what it is. You don't need to convince people of anything or force anything on them, and you don't need to have all the answers. In fact, the less answers you have, the more they might will be willing to come to a place that allows them to ask questions! All you need to do is extend an invitation.
If you have not been to church in a while, commit to making this Sunday the Sunday to come. You have to start somewhere. Be the change you want to see.
