Life Goes On
Today, April 10, is Good Friday. Many churches in the past offered Good Friday worship at noon, the time of the day the Bible tells us that Jesus was crucified. Our Good Friday worship is available all day for your benefit.
Today is also Golfer's Day (although golf courses are closed in Illinois), Sibling Day (in honor of the day, I made my brother Steve, a pastor in the Springfield area, preach the Good Friday sermon you see online), and Safety Pin Day. The story goes that in 1849, Walter Hunt owed a friend some money, and decided to invent something to make some money to pay his debt. He came up with the safety pin. It is a reminder to be thankful for human ingenuity and the motivation to use our creativity. We've been seeing lots of that during this time of "shelter in place"
