Easter Sunday 2021

I’ve sung in choirs for a long time. The nature of choir rehearsal means that a choir can start working up Christmas music in September and begin looking at Easter music while the baby is still in the manger. There’s a time shift that prepares heart, mind and voice for the Big Event, and then, when Event is over, the music still lingers. We’ve been preparing all through long Lent of this past year for the Big Event of Easter, hoping desperately for a Resurrection of life as we knew it. That Resurrection will not happen on April 4, 2021.

The pandemic is going to rob us of another Easter of crowding into the Sanctuary, feeling the buzz of “Hallelujahs” and hearing our choir belt out “Christ the Lord is Risen Today!”  Nonetheless, the Resurrection we actually need: a Resurrection of Hope, of Faith, of Trust in the power of Christ to overcome anything and everything—that’s the Resurrection we’ll recall this Sunday, and for a long time afterward. Please join us online at 10 a.m. on our UCC Missoula YouTube Channel or our UCC Missoula Facebook page.  (By the way, we will hear the choir belt out “Christ the Lord is Risen Today” online.) With love and faith in the Joy to come, Pastor Jennifer
