We had another wonderful, blessed experience at the community Easter service at Pearl United Methodist Church this past Wednesday. I wish those of you who come and give to the benevolent offering could see the faces and hear the stories of the people we help with that offering. The city does a great service by giving to people from that offering.

 We also do “service” to each other by coming and ministering to each other in the community services. In the type of English that was spoken centuries ago when the Bible was first written in English the term “worshipful service” means “honorable work.” It is an honorable work to come together as we do for singing and preaching and giving and to serve each other for God’s glory in those ways every week.

 It is such a wonderful experience to worship with so many different types of people from different areas of our community, from different backgrounds and with different Christian traditions. I am grateful to observe the way people at the service witnessed to each other with their faces and gestures and words during the singing and preaching and with their greetings and fellowship after the service. I am grateful that we were part of such service and that we will have another opportunity to serve each other today.
