This month's letter from Pastor Roger Osbeck

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

We all know how well music may richly affect our emotional state of mind. A peppy song can lift our spirits and might cause our feet to start dancing (or tapping at the least). A somber tune may bring a tear to our hearts as well as to our eyes.

One day recently I awoke, went through all my morning rituals, and headed off to the church. As I drove up Hubbell Avenue to E. Euclid, the shining sun broke through the clouds and immediately a song started ringing in my head: 10,000 Reasons by Matt Redman. Most of you have probably heard this, and even sung along with the lyrics a time or two.

Bless the Lord, O my soul, O my soul
Worship His holy name
Sing like never before, O my soul
I'll worship Your holy name

The sun comes up, it's a new day dawning
It's time to sing your song again
Whatever may pass and whatever lies before me
Let me be singing when the evening comes
You're rich in love and You're slow to anger
Your name is great and Your heart is kind
For all Your goodness, I will keep on singing
Ten thousand reasons for my heart to find
And on that day when my strength is failing
The end draws near and my time has come
Still, my soul will sing Your praise unending
Ten thousand years and then forevermore

There's a version recorded live on YouTube where the crowd starts cheering loudly when the last verse is sung. It's truly an uplifting song reminding us of eternal life forevermoredue to the never failing love of God we find in Christ Jesus. This month, we remember and celebrate once again the events of Holy Week which made the forevermore possible: April 1, Maundy Thursday; April 2, Good Friday; and April 4, Easter Sunday.

We invite you to join us for these events this year. Unfortunately, they will all be offered online only, once again, through our Facebook page. Maundy Thursday and Good Friday will be live at 6:30 p.m. Easter will be celebrated at our usual Sunday morning time of 10:30 a.m.

For each and every day, I pray, whatever may pass and whatever lies before you, you will be singing God's song of love and praise when the evening comes. And may you sing like never before as you worshiip the holy mane of God and bless it with your soul now and forevermore.

Peace to you. See you in church, sometime soon.

Pastor Roger
