holy week

Good Friday cross

We haven't had much time to think about writing this week. The warmer weather means that we need to spend all the time outside, and then this time of year there's also a lot of good church to do.

Yesterday we ran a Maundy Thursday service for families. Not too many people ended up being able to come, but everyone who did had a fun time.

he's part of what we're doing

Then this evening we went to the Good Friday service.

7:00 to 8:00 pm is a tough time for the boys, but they did great.

they all stayed awake, for one hour

And our church being the way it is, there was plenty of interactivity to keep their interest.

joys floating in sorrow

Passover tomorrow with the Jewish grandparents, then we're all set for Easter!
