Pastor's Ponderings.....by David A. Bigley

Phil Callaway, relates this story...One sleepy Sunday afternoon when Phil's son was five-years-old, they drove past a cemetery together.  Noticing a large pile of dirt beside a newly excavated grave, his son pointed and said:  "Look, Dad, one got out!"  Phil says:  I laughed, but now, every time I pass a graveyard, I'm reminded of the One who got out.

On Easter Sunday we will celebrate the One who got out, the One who has defeated sin and death by His death and resurrection!  In Christ we have been raised to live life in a new way.  The way of love, the way of healing, teh way of reconcilliation, the way of overcoming evil by doing the good that Christ's love within us empowers us to do.  Because of Christ's resurrection we live with an eternal Spring in our step!

The Stone's Been Rolled Away - by David A. Bigley

Easter is a time of great celebration, For death could not hold its prey.

Jesus rose victorious, The stone's been rolled away.

Onto a cross they nailed him, In His death, sin and death hath died.

Their cruel reign has been forever defeated, The reconciling love of God is fully on our side.

The stone's been rolled away, No longer need we live in fear and shame.

The depths of God's love and grace, Have been forever revealed in Jesus' name.

Easter is a time of great celebration, We've been risen to life anew.

To walk in the light of God's love each day, For the stone's been rolled away.
