Dear Friends in Christ,

Have you ever had one of those Friday’s?  It doesn’t necessarily have to be Friday, it could be any day, but here is the scene.  Nothing goes right, people lie about you, you are told you are no good, worthless, unloved, and unwanted, your friends turn on you, even abandon you, and even your Father avoids you.  Maybe it’s Friday for you, but take heart, Sunday’s coming!

“It’s Friday. Jesus is praying. Peter’s a sleeping. Judas is betraying. But Sunday’s comin’. It’s Friday. Pilate’s struggling. The council is conspiring. The crowd is vilifying. They don’t even know that Sunday’s comin’.  It’s Friday. The disciples are running like sheep without a shepherd. Mary’s crying. Peter is denying. But they don’t know that Sunday’s a comin’.  It’s Friday. The Romans beat my Jesus. They robe Him in scarlet. They crown Him with thorns. But they don’t know that Sunday’s comin’.  It’s Friday. See Jesus walking to Calvary. His blood dripping. His body stumbling. And his spirit’s burdened. But you see, it’s only Friday. Sunday’s comin’.  It’s Friday. The world’s winning. People are sinning. And evil’s grinning. It’s Friday. The soldiers nail my Savior’s hands to the cross. They nail my Savior’s feet to the cross. And then they raise him up next to criminals. It’s Friday. But let me tell you something: Sunday’s comin’.

It’s Friday. The disciples are questioning. What has happened to their King. And the Pharisees are celebrating that their scheming has been achieved. But they don’t know: It’s only Friday. Sunday’s comin’.  It’s Friday. He’s hanging on the cross feeling forsaken by His Father. Left alone and dying. Can nobody save Him? Oooh, it’s Friday. But Sunday’s comin’.

It’s Friday. The earth trembles. The sky grows dark. My King yields his spirit.  It’s Friday. Hope is lost. Death has won. Sin has conquered. And Satan’s just a laughing. It’s Friday. Jesus is buried. A soldier stands guard. A rock is rolled into place. But it’s Friday, only Friday, but Sunday’s comin’.”  (Author anonymous)

We live in a Friday world, but try not to get too wrapped up in the pessimism, doom and gloom. It may be Friday but we are an Easter people. See you in church, cause Sunday’s comin’!

In Christ, 

Pastor Larry

    We drove past our church last night and saw the cross lit up. It almost took my breath away! To some, the cross reminds folks of the sadness and brutality of the death of our Lord. Not to say I don’t cry when I see the crucifixion, but last night I saw the glorious beauty of an extraordinary gift – everlasting life! I hope we keep this cross in front of the church lit all seasons. What a message of hope.., what a witness to our community…what an invitation to the lost and hurting. I can still close my eyes and see the cross.
