Pastoral Epistle – March 28, 2024

Posted on: March 27th, 2024 by St. Bede Anglican Church

Beloved Congregation,

Greetings in Jesus!

“Looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.” Hebrews 12:2

Our Lord, Jesus Christ, bore all the shame and pain enduring the suffering of crucifixion because he greatly delighted in fellowship with us. So, he became the author and finisher of our faith.  We are blessed to set our eyes on him in all situations.  

We had a blessed Palm Sunday Service:  We are thankful to all our volunteers who helped with making crosses and decorating the sanctuary.  Others who trained our Sunday School children to do a super nice Palm Sunday program.  We are thankful for the Easter Egg Hunt for the children and for the Easter Piñata for our youth.  You all made it a wonderful celebration overall.  Glory to God in the highest!

Our Lord counted it ‘Joy’ to give His life as a ransom that we may receive eternal life.  As we draw close to Good Friday, let us also prepare for our Lord’s glorious resurrection.
