Holy Week & Easter
We are Christians because of the events of what we now call Holy Week. Jesus experienced highs and lows, the betrayal and judgment, death, and the power of God to resurrect him to new life. There is power for us is in realizing our lives mirror those realities. The more we engage in the services of Holy Week the more Easter will become a celebration of New Life.
