It’s the week after Easter and that means things quickly get back to normal. Holy Week brought lots of special worship opportunities, new music and, of course, great food. It was a BLAST and now we get back to “normal.” As I think about returning to normal here at St. Tim’s I have to admit, I wouldn’t want it any other way.
You see, I think Holy Week is great. The music, the flowers, the Easter egg hunt (with 200 eggs this year!) and the proclamation that He Is Risen! It’s all GREAT! But, I LOVE the normal here at St. Tim’s. When we get back to “normal” it means we’re getting back to this incredible Holy Spirit ride we’re on all the time. We welcome the newcomer. We work for justice and peace. We discern God’s call, and how God is calling us to love God and love our neighbor in ever-expanding ways. We shout, “Amen!” to the Good News that the risen Christ is alive and with us every moment of every day.
It’s pretty “normal” around here and I couldn’t be more excited! Amen?!
See you Sunday…
