I’ve got a goody for your “Resurrection Sunday” basket!
Speaking of, I am really happy with the trend to rename the celebration to something that honors God rather than the name of a pagan goddess. It makes for a little awkwardness when going to egg hunts though…Holy Saturday Egg Hunts? (Saturn-day. Interesting. Still the name of a false god!) Well, whatever you chose to call this weekend, I hope it blesses you.
Can I make a confession? These last few years I have gone into the “high” holidays with a bit of a bad attitude. Our Pastor never preaches on the specific holiday text. We also don’t sing the more traditional songs. We still decorate, hobble together a choir, and have a big to-do…we just don’t get to read the actual account of Jesus’ birth on Christmas, or death and resurrection on Resurrection Sunday.
Pastor explained at Christmas that the whole Bible is about Jesus so he can get the Christmas message from any text.
I…well, I mean…I guess technically he is right. But I grew up in church and I miss the old-fashioned way. I am 35 this year, so I guess that’s just me getting old.
Foreclosed is still free at Barnes and Noble, iTunes, and Smashwords. I haven’t seen it appear at Sony or Kobo yet,
and Amazon hasn’t pricematched it yet. *NEWS FLASH* Amazon has now pricematched Foreclosed to free! It is permanently free indefinitely and at the will of Amazon!
I’m going to try and get to church on Sunday with a heart that’s not grumbling, and I pray that God brings miracles to your life this weekend as well!
