"Easter weekend is knocking on our door in our "Road to Easter" message series. This weekend the message is "Crossroads and Intersections." The following weekend, April 8 and 9 is "Palms in the Path." Then Easter weekend will be here on April 15 and 16. What a great time of the year for the church.
In the early days of the Christian church, as new converts became part of the Christian faith and the religion spread across the Roman Empire, the early Christians had a greeting for one another. Just as I might say to you, "
Good morning," and you would reply,
"Good morning to you," their greeting was
"He is risen," to which the other replied, "
He is risen, indeed!"
