Holy Week commenced with a big praise parade at both services on Palm Sunday (yesterday) that almost took care of the grays (for more on that, click on www.koppdisclosure.com, go to the right column of archived editions, click on the "Retirement" issue, and work on the puzzle).
This week is pregnant with opportunities to increase intimacy with Jesus and taste the paradise that is eternally in store for everyone through Him as Lord and Savior.
Actually, I think every hour of Holy Week is filled with opportunities; including our regular schedule of educational, fellowship, Midweek, board meetings, and so on. For more information, just go to www.belvpresbyterian.org, check your bulletin again, click on www.bnnsradio.com, pull out the most recent newsletter, or call Karen and Kathie at the church office (815-544-6402) for updated information.
Parenthetically, while the weather report this week hints at locusts and the Rock River turning into blood, I'm expecting something from Someone a little less eschatological.
