Zealot: The Life and Times of Jesus of Nazareth
Reflections on life, faith, church, spirituality, and anything else
I tried something new today after I preached from Galatians
2:20, “I have been crucified with Christ…”
We had some of the communion elements placed on the arms of the cross
and I invited those who wanted to come to the cross and take the elements as a
way of symbolically identifying our crucifixion with Christ. Even though not everyone came to the cross, many did. It was a powerful communion service and one
that I will continue during Lent hereafter.
Thank you to Caleb for most of the pictures. You can hear the audio of the March 10, 2013

I’ve had the best time coaching 9 kindergarteners (3 aren’t in the picture) the last couple of weeks. I wasn’t expecting to coach when we signed Micah up for soccer, but through an odd series of events, I became the coach and we’ve been having a blast. Our last game is this Sunday afternoon. Three cheers for “The Blue Man Group”, original I know, but it was either that or "The Zombie Brain Eaters" (that’s what happens if you suggest kindergarten boys pick a team name!)
What a jam packed week! It all began with the last day of school for the boys -
My apologies to the 2 of you who follow my blog!! I hadn't realized it's been two months since my last entry. I've been quite busy with many exciting things going on! And we are gearing up for a great Easter service at Springfield Church this Sunday, April 24th. Several will be baptized and there will also be an Easter egg hunt for all the kids after the worship service. We'd love to have you join us for breakfast at 9:30 am and worship at 10:30 am. It is the bodily resurrection of Christ that gives us the greatest hope!
