Dear Friends,

By the time you read this, we will be days away from Palm Sunday and Holy Week, with Easter on the horizon.

My memories of Easter growing up include new patent leather shoes, frilly dresses, and sparkling white gloves. But my memories also include the somber words and music of Maundy Thursday, the quiet sharing of a meal around the Lord’s Table, departure from church thinking about the horrors that awaited our Lord on Good Friday – and hope for the resurrection dawn of Easter.

Read the Gospel of Mark (11:1-16:8) and immerse yourself in the story of Jesus’ last week. You’ll find the triumphal entry into Jerusalem, which we recall with children waving palm branches and the choir singing Hosannas. You’ll find each day bringing Jesus closer to the cross, to his death and ultimate resurrection.

Our faith hinges on that cross. If Christ did not die, then there was no resurrection. If there was no resurrection, then we are among the simplest of fools.

So don’t skip Maundy Thursday, Good Friday. Only by walking through that final week with Jesus can we begin to appreciate God’s deep love for us. Only by standing at the foot of the cross can we truly celebrate the Easter resurrection.

In Christ, Terri
