This year we are facing a completely different Easter than any other year in our lives. I’ve celebrated different Easters but not like this… everyone in their own homes.
I am so grateful for the ability to gather together electronically. But you may say, “It won’t be the same”. However, this morning I happened upon a shared video of chapel service at my Alma Mater (Asbury University). The chaplains were still having chapel for the students even though they were spread all across the nation.
One chaplain noted that in a certain language the word “crisis” not only means impending trouble but “opportunity”. We have an opportunity to make something wonderful of this time. We can create new traditions and memorable moments together in our little families right in our living room.
Sure we may not have new dresses or egg hunts and candy, but maybe, just maybe, or attention will turn to the hope of Easter. The Jesus is the Resurrection and the Life. That He can restore hope and joy to our lives that may have been missing for a long long time.
Below I share several links to other suggestions for celebrating in place this Easter. But before that, I share this prayer from Romans 15:13…
Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you believe so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.
How to Celebrate in Place
Participate in Easter Worship “in Place”
If you would like a small church effect, I invite you to “attend” one of our services on Facebook. Godd there now and “LIKE” us and you should get notified when they go live.
If you would prefer a larger church experience, I suggest Greg Laurie’s Church which also happens to also be called Harvest Church.
Or chuck Swindoll’s Church, Stonebriar Community
May God Bless you this Easter!
Sometimes you will find us linking up with these places.
