Happy Easter, everyone!
I've had the most wonderful day. I led worship in a charming Latino church and joyfully celebrated the resurrection with them. They were such a warm family (literally -- most of them were related!) and made me feel so welcome. We sang (in Spanish and English), prayed, read and then ate at a picnic in the park. Oh my, did we eat! My family came too and my nieces were hilarious as usual. At one point in my sermon I said that in the resurrection Christ didn't just conquer death and sin (and was going on to say he conquered fear as well) and my niece Natalie yelled, "No!" It was great. I think she was trying to get a bracelet from my sister, but I'll just call that her first sermon. ;)
Hope you and your families had as blessed an Easter as I have. Christ is risen! Hallelujah!
