Yes, Easter this year falls on April Fools’ Day. Think of Jesus’ splendid Easter/April Fools’ joke: “You thought you’d finished me off on the cross—April Fools! I’m still here!”
Easter Sunday Worship, 10:30 am, with wonderful special music. All are welcome!
During this Lenten season we’ve been doing a few different things on different Sundays. A couple weeks ago on the first Sunday in Lent we had a lay-lead ‘Brunch Worship’. The whole shared meal was shaped into worship with pieces of ritual/liturgy to begin and end and scripture-based conversation in the middle.
This Sunday (March 4th) we’ll use some prayers created for Amistad Sunday, lifting up the piece of our heritage shaped by our spiritual forebears’ defense of African slaves who took over the ship transporting them. On the 11th we’ll have a worship shaped around three different interactions with scripture and one another. On the 18th, people will offer their witness about favorite hymns.
And then it’s Holy Week. Palm Sunday on the 25th, with Condon UCC’s traditional Palm Sunday brunch, Maundy Thursday, and yes, Easter falls on April 1st this year!
