Easter Sunday

March 31, 2013

Old Union Church of ChristEaster Sunday (March 31st), our morning appointment was with the Old Union Church of Christ, deep in the woods of Carroll County, Mississippi and traversed by muddy, gravel roads. Rebecca accompanied us.

For Bible class, I presented a new PowerPoint on the recent three-week mission trip I made to Guyana, South America. During worship, I preached, “Why Do the Churches of Christ Observe the Lord’s Supper Weekly?” It was part of a series (not presented on this occasion) that emphasizes biblical authority and that the church of the Bible belongs to Jesus Christ, which requires it to turn exclusively to the New Testament of Jesus Christ to discern what is authorized in religion.

Following worship, the congregation had a fellowship meal, in which Bonnie, Rebecca and I were happy recipients. There was also an Easter egg hunt for the children, in which I opted not to participate.

Sunday evening, I made the same PowerPoint presentation about the Guyana trip to the West President Church of Christ in Greenwood, MS. Guess what? Several of the members stayed at the building after worship to enjoy pizza together before parting to their various homes.

We have been staying close to home, waiting for news when Bonnie’s surgery will occur. These two appointments afforded us the opportunity to do so.
