The Saturday
on April 16th, 2022
Holy Saturday, also called Easter Vigil in some traditions of the church, is the day that ends the season of Lent. Some Christian traditions even associate this day with Christ’s triumphant descent into hell. I tend to think of Holy Saturday as the day Jesus rested in the tomb.I do not have absolute certainty about what happened to Jesus between the crucifixion and the resurrection. Did Jesus desc...  Read More
The Friday

Good Friday is the day we remember the death of Jesus on the cross. It is always a powerful reminder that Jesus completely sacrifices His humanity and lays aside His divinity to endure death for our sake. Remember someone actually died so that Killearn United Methodist Church, every other Christian expression, and the redemption of creation could actually become a reality.Here is one of my absolut...  Read More

The Temple

Early in Holy Week, Jesus goes to the temple and does something I would imagine no one would have expected. Read with me from Matthew 21: 12-16.Jesus entered the temple courts and drove out all who were buying and selling there. He overturned the tables of the money changers and the benches of those selling doves. “It is written (from Isaiah 56:7) ,” he said to them, “‘My house will be called a ho...  Read More

What an incredible Palm Sunday that we enjoyed at Killearn! I saw some folks who enjoyed worship in our sanctuary for the first time in over two years. The choir processed singing Hosanna into the sanctuary with palms at 8:00am, and then kids in their families did the same at 9:30am and 11:00am. Our Youth Mission Team was at all three services as they prepare for serving with Twelves Churches in J...  Read More
