Why I chose to Suspend the Morning Service

Blessings, my prayers this finds everyone and your families Blessed and safe. During these uncertain times we are uncomfortable having to deal with changes to our routines and traditions.
One of these will be our Sunrise Easter Service which breaks my heart as well as many of yours. When asked whether I would be willing to break the quarantine and the law, my answer is no.

In John chapter 19 verse 8

8 When Pilate heard this, he was even more afraid, 9and he went back inside the palace. “Where do you come from?” he asked Jesus, but Jesus gave him no answer. 10“Do you refuse to speak to me?” Pilate said. “Don’t you realize I have power either to free you or to crucify you?”

11 Jesus answered, “You would have no power over me if it were not given to you from above. Therefore the one who handed me over to you is guilty of a greater sin.”

So if Jesus Christ subjected Himself to the Governor of Judea I figured I should subject myself to our Governor. Unlike Pilate I believe our Government is looking out for our well being. We also look to cause no harm and seek to encourage civility and respect of our Police Officers and Local Government.
I will be doing a live stream service on our Face Book page First UMC of Sea Bright.
 My hopes this will be a wonderful Easter Day filled with love and  the true understanding of the sacrifice and meaning of Easter.
My love and gratitude for your understanding and encouragement!!!
Blessings

By His Wounds

Revive Us Again

What makes it a revival? All kinds of things could be considered, but it comes down to two things: first is an invitation to discipleship, and second is the hospitality of a loving community of faith.
