During Holy Week we observe the Palm Sunday celebration, Tenebrae Service on Maundy Thursday and our Good Friday services.
And then the high light is the festive celebration of the resurrection of Jesus on Resurrection (Easter) Sunday.

The love of Christ is a central element of Christian belief. It refers both to the love of Jesus Christ for humanity, and to the love of Christians for Christ. These two aspects are not separate teachings — the love of Christians for Christ is simply a reflection of his love for his followers.

Lent is to be a season of prayer, spiritual discipline and growth, penitence, conversion, and simplicity. The word “Lent” comes from the Germanic word for springtime and can be seen as spiritual spring cleaning.

The gospels tell us that Jesus died saying the following words: "Father, into your hands I commit my spirit." (Lk 23:46). Jesus had intimate fellowship with God the Father when he died. He committed himself into the hands of the Father. We too call God our Father, once we are not anymore removed from him.

When one minister meets another, a question often asked is, "How big is your church?" The replies then establish the pecking order. The minister with more members has the greater status.

But let’s be humble, because the old man has not yet fully gone. The new man has not yet fully taken over. The fact is, we still sin.
So we already have new life but it is not yet fully displayed.
