    Do you recall your last process of “church shopping”? In my experience, choosing a church home has been a difficult journey. When we moved to Lafayette, it took us about six months of visiting churches before we found and committed to Kossuth. I can still recall each new round of first impressions. I recall feeling torn at times, thinking about the compromises we would have to make at church X or church Y.

    We underestimate the impact of sin to the peril of underestimating what Christ accomplished on the cross. We Christians don’t carry on about sin and sinfulness in order to hold some self-righteous burden over others’ heads; we do so as a measuring stick to grasp the amazing and infinite grace God has shown us and all who believe.

    Resurrection Sunday is such a pivotal day in our Christian calendar. It has been throughout the many generations of God’s Church. It will continue to be. Yet like any annual event, our hearts can easily slip into a superficial state of pseudo-celebration. If we are not careful, our proclamation that “He is risen indeed” can easily slip into a low hum instead of a joyous shout.

    This is a very different week in the life of our church. Goodbyes are hard. God’s thoughts and ways are not mine. I struggle with that sometimes, and I might even be writing this blog post as a reminder mainly to myself that I trust in the God whose thoughts and ways are higher than mine. If you also feel some combination of angry, sad, and confused, as I do... that's OK. We’re figuring this out together with God’s help.
