Pittsburgh fans are loving Spring. The Pirates are only about ten games into the season (you all know, we had a winning record last season and even made the playoffs - finally!). The Penguins begin their playoff run tomorrow night. Even as I write this, I'm wearing my penguin sweatshirt. Life is good when there's optimistic, fan-fever in the air!
But what about things of greater meaning and more significant purpose? Every year, churches around the world celebrate Holy Week. Palm Sunday, Good Friday, and Easter are HUGE events in the religious world.
When was the last time you stopped and thought about:
"Why did Jesus had to die?"
"Why did He have to rise again?"
"Does this truly matter today?"
"What does it really mean for me?"
These are questions I regularly ask myself. Diving into Scripture and talking with friends who are serious about life, faith, and practice, we are growing in the significance of the Kingdom of God as we live our lives today. The cross and resurrection pave the way for indescribable victories all because of Jesus. This will be the focus of Easter at Advance Community this Sunday.
Everyone is invited! (details)
