Easter Sunday 4.16

He is risen!  He is risen indeed! We sing this song most Easter Sundays at Wayne Presbyterian Church.  When the hymn starts, I feel the power of God and the miracle that is Easter.  Also, as I've told people before, my very favorite part of the Easter Sunday service is when one of the Dudt children (now young adults) crash the cymbals together in this hymn.  It's an incredible exclamation point, just as the resurrection is.  Hallelujah, he is risen! ...

Lent 4.14

The community Good Friday service is at WPC today at noon if you'd like to join us.  On this saddest of days, these words of poetry still me and scare me a little.  And I think that is ok today. Friday by Hannah Faith Notess Maybe the prisoner's mother did't block her ears against the swinging whip, the dragging chain, the buzz of voltage that set off fireworks in the brain.

Lent 4.12

John O'Donohue writes some of the most beautiful blessings.  The one below is called, "For Courage."  As we find ourselves in the midst of this Holy Week, it seems that praying for courage to continue to journey with Christ as he suffers is fitting. For Courage   When the light around you lessens And your thoughts darken until Your body feels fear turn Cold as a stone inside When you find yourself bereft Of any belief in yourself And all you unknowingly...

Lent 4.11

As we draw closesr to the cross, the readings for Holy Tuesday often focus on betrayal.  They remind us of how the disciples fell asleep and remind us of Peter's denial of Jesus.  This short poem helps us find our place in the stor as well. Passionate Sins by Paul J. Willis -Luke 22 Would I betray you with a kiss      deny you with a word           accuse you from your lips? Surely I would      and have... Read More
