Happy Easter

Happy Easter, everyone.

Thank you for your prayers for the play. We could not have had more perfect weather, and we have gotten so many wonderful responses from people at the play. They said that it was very powerful.

Josh and I are still pretty wiped out (I just got up from a wee nap and Josh is still napping). We are also a little sunburned from being outside most of yesterday and half of Friday.

Saturday morning was perfectly sunny and the temperature was very pleasant. By the time we were beginning the play it got overcast, but this was not so bad as we didn't have to squint at the sun. Everything went pretty smoothly except for a few mic problems. Speaking of mics, it was pretty tricky switching them out there in from of 4,000 people! The crucifixion was powerful and I almost teared up. I did hear a few sniffles out in the audience. After the play it started to sprinkle just as we went inside to change. Perfect timing!

I was just listening to this song and thought it was good to reflect on today:

Come to the table and savor the sight
The wine and the bread that was broken
And all have been welcomed to come if they might
Accept as their own these two tokens
The bread is His body, the wine is the blood
And the One who provides them is true
He freely offers, we freely receive
To accept and believe Him is all we must do
Chorus
Come to the table and taste of the Glory
And savor the sorrow, He's dying tomorrow
The hand that is breaking the bread
Soon will be broken
And here at the table sit those who have loved You
One is a traitor and one will deny
And He's lived His life for them all
And for all be crucified
Come to the table He's prepared for you
The bread of forgiveness, the wine of release
Come to the table and sit down beside Him
The Savior wants you to join in the feast
Come to the table and see in His eyes
The love that the Father has spoken
And know you are welcome, whatever your crime
For every commandment you've broken
For He's come to love you and not to condemn
And He offers a pardon of peace
If you'll come to the table, you'll feel in your heart
The greatest forgiveness, the greatest release
Chorus
Come to the table He's prepared for you
The bread of forgiveness, the wine of release
Come to the table and sit down beside Him
The Savior wants you to join in the feast
