WORDS FROM THE PASTOR
March Break is over! But Spring will be here on Wednesday around 6pm! For every piece of good news we do not want to hear the bad news. This time of year we have a lot of good news. Well, for the most part anyway. There are two ways to look at March Break being over. Kids think one way and parents think another. For spring we have the opposite. Kids love it and parents don’t love it with muddy shoes and clothes.
With it being Easter, Spring is double good news. It’s a time of new beginnings. The Snow Bells are up in full bloom and the Tulips and Daffodils won’t be too far behind. But there is more to Easter and a new beginning. It’s the sunshine, warm weather and the beauty of spring that is like no other.
As we took a small break last week we can now refocus on the walk to the Resurrection. Like the kids, it’s time to focus on the important things at hand. For us at MBC it means weekly getting ready to recognize what Christ did for us and then realize that Christ’s Resurrection is ours as well. It’s time to focus on Him.
