If you’ve ever been in a house with kids you know, when it’s quiet you’re in trouble. Kids love to make noise, run around, throw things, jump off of furniture and generally live life to the fullest. I love it. When kids are too quiet you know something’s wrong. Maybe someone’s climbed the refrigerator and gotten stuck on top or maybe someone’s broken your favorite coffee mug. Whatever it is, it’s not good.
St. Tim’s is really quiet today. It’s Holy Week and so much of our regular programming is on hold. It feels like something’s wrong, off, or not as it should be. How appropriate…
We’re reaching the very end of our Lenten journey. We know there’s plenty wrong in us and God’s beloved creation. It’s the week before Easter and we know everything is not “O.K.” God has to act.
Thanks be to God, God does.
Easter is coming and we’ll be able to make some fantastic Holy Spirit noise on Easter morning. Until then, we gather to hear the unfolding story of God’s unending mercy and grace. The story that takes you, me and all the world from death to life. Come and see the one who takes what is broken and makes it new so that we may live life to the fullest once again.
See you Maundy Thursday, Good Friday and Resurrection Sunday…
