What a GLORIOUS morning! Happy Easter to one and all!!! 5:25am-before the sunrise Easter Sunday service at Ghala Church, Oman! The Protestant Church has a tradition of each family placing flowers on the cross (or at the foot of the cross when full) on Easter Sunday. Pastor Michael Peppin gave a moving sermon, titled “So Send I You“, on the foundation of the Resurrection of Jesus to the Christian faith. Today’s passage was from John 20, verses 19 to 31. I videotaped the 24-minute sermon in 3 parts. Here is the 1st part (10 mins) , the 2nd part of the video (10 mins) and finally the 3rd of 3 parts (almost 5 mins). On Easter, the worship leader says: “Alleluia! Christ is risen! ” and the congregation replies, “He is risen indeed! Alleluia!” Pastors Michael Peppin and Jack Buteyn and the communion stewards. Pastor Michael Peppin, his wife, Vinoo, and his daughter, Deepa Don and Dotty Harper Andy, Che and Gershom Brown. Our little Gershom was so well behaved!
Great is the Mystery of Faith. Dying, You destroyed our death. Rising, You restored our life. Lord Jesus, come in glory!
A HAPPY & BLESSED EASTER TO EVERYONE!!!
