Dear Dickinson First Family and Friends,
Easter is coming soon - that means resurrection, life after death! It is amazing how powerful that image is in our faith and in our lives. Resurrection means no end; resurrection means opportunity. Resurrection as reality for Christ means resurrection as possibility and promise for us.
We want to begin inviting you early to our Easter worship celebrations of the resurrection on Sunday, April 4. Like Christmas Eve, the pandemic may change HOW we celebrate and worship, but it doesn’t change THAT we celebrate and worship. We are planning worship experiences in Contemporary and Traditional worship that will be powerful and meaningful whether you worship in-person or online - both will proclaim that Christ has risen indeed. With Maundy Thursday and Good Friday worship experiences during Holy Week being offered in-person and online for the very first time, we may end up having our largest Holy Week worship attendance ever.
Be on the lookout for a special edition eNews with our Holy Week Worship experiences. Next week, be on the lookout for your opportunity to RSVP for the Resurrection.
This coming Sunday, we will consider the recovery of imagination. Imagination is one of the human capabilities most often associated with the scriptural concept of humanity being created in the image of God. In times of crises, we can go into survival mode and develop tunnel vision, often blocking out the possibility of imagination. God speaks through the prophet in Isaiah 43: “Look, I am about to do something new; even now it is coming. Do you not see it?”
Join us Sunday… and imagine!
