Are you curious what happens on Easter on Boston? Well, I took my camera around with me last weekend to show you all the amazing things happening to celebrate Christ’s resurrection in Boston! I then put a little video together – check out:
-Unity Covenant and foot washing with Grace Street and Journey Church
-Cambridge Community Easter Egg Hunt
-Easter Vigil service at the Church of the Advent
-Joint Easter Sunday Morning Service
I am just fascinated with the vast array of God’s kingdom…from the humility of washing another person’s feet, to the smile on a little girl’s face who finds an easter egg, to the awaiting of Christ’s birth in a dark room, to the joy felt with people all worshipping Christ together – all of this shouts “Jesus!” He is in all, and through all. In Him we live and move and have our being (Acts 17:28).
One of the last things that Jesus told the disciples was: “But I will see you again and your hearts will rejoice, and no one will take your joy away from you” (John 16:22).
We celebrate a risen Lord, one who did not simply die but who rose from the grave so that we can forever be in a relationship with Him. This is good news! Rejoice in that today, and always. Nothing that happens in the world can take away the assurance of this life we have in Christ. Hallelujah!
