Holy Week

Posted in Uncategorized on 21.04.14 by Merlyn

I had the privilege of celebrating my first Holy Week as the lead pastor of a church. It certainly is a busy and intense week. Palm Sunday, Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, Easter Sunday and many other events make for a full week with a wide range of emotions. It was an exhausting joy to walk through this Holy Week, both as a Christ-follower and a Pastor. Trying to fully embrace each moment and share the story in a way that fit the moment but was also practical was difficult and humbling. Holy Week presents an incredible opportunity to share the gospel and point people to Jesus. From the celebration of Palm Sunday to the powerful reflection of Maundy Thursday, the pain of Good Friday and finally the celebration of Easter. What a story! Holy Week reminds me of how thankful I truly am to follow Jesus and to have the honor to be called to professional ministry. I am deeply thankful and also rather tired!
