An Easter Week Word from Jesus “A New Life” Welcome the Spirit’s Gift of The JOY of New Beginnings A WORD FROM THE LORD Or don’t you know that all of us who were baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into his death? We were therefore buried with him through baptism into death in order that, just as Christ was raised form the dead through the glory of the Father, we too may live a new life. Romans 6:3-4 A WORD OF ENCOURAGEMENT God has brought you to a new day with new challenges and new anxieties about doing things for which you were never prepared, but he’s brought you hear with his promise that his love for you never changes. Remember your baptism and rejoice in his presence and grace! WE’RE PRAYING FOR YOU “Lord God, in every generation you lead your servants on new and unexpected journeys. Be with me today as you always have, and as you have always been with those you call. Amen.” RENEWAL MOMENT Take a deep breath. Exhale Slowly. “Lord, have mercy.” Thanksgiving for The Joy of Brand New Beginnings.
