Here is a video by David Esau of the church bell ringing on Easter morning. Along with other churches, we rang our bell 33 times for Jesus’ years on earth at 9:00 am that morning, and the bell could be heard 4 miles away!
We are beginning Holy Week, the week where we intentionally remember the difficult road of Jesus to the cross, and the challenging message that threatened the powerful enough to seek to crucify him. Yet following the darkness of that week, we celebrate Easter, the story of Jesus’ resurrection and enduring power to redeem the worst darkness.
This year will be a Holy Week like no other, as we are forced to stay home out of precaution for the spread of the coronavirus. We need our spiritual practices for this time like never before, even though we cannot meet in person like other years.
During Holy Week, we encourage households to consider trying out the ideas from Holy Week at Home, in order to celebrate Holy Week, and Maundy Thursday at home. This resource is by Talashia Keim Yoder from the Building Faith website.
