In this most holy of weeks those of us who give leadership at the local church level (new church plants and existing churches) are often so caught up in preparing worship and sermons that we don't have the time, or take the time, to allow the season to come to us. Sometimes we don't have a chance to take in Holy Week and experience for ourselves the depth and breadth of the cross, the tomb and then the empty tomb. Sometimes we are giving so much that we don't have time to receive. My prayer for you is that there might be a moment or even an hour when even during this week we can enter into the season allow the cross and the empty tomb to speak to our hearts, our lives, and our ministries. We wish for you a most blessed Holy Week and Easter and may God bless you and your ministry.
