How the Virus Stole Easter
By Kristi Bothur
With a nod to Dr. Seuss 😊

Twas late in ‘19 when the virus began
Bringing chaos and fear to all people, each land.

People were sick, hospitals full,
Doctors overwhelmed, no one in school.

As winter gave way to the promise of spring,
The virus raged on, touching peasant and king.

People hid in their homes from the enemy unseen.
They YouTubed and Zoomed, social-distanced, and cleaned.

April approached and churches were closed.
“There won’t be an Easter,” the world supposed.

“There won’t be church services, and egg hunts are out.
No reason for new dresses when we can’t go about.”

Holy Week started, as bleak as the rest.
The world was focused on masks and on tests.

“Easter can’t happen this year,” it proclaimed.
“Online and at home, it just won’t be the same.”

Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, the days came and went.
The virus pressed on; it just would not relent.

The world woke Sunday and nothing had changed.
The virus still menaced, the people, estranged.

“Pooh pooh to the saints,” the world was grumbling.
“They’re finding out now that no Easter is coming.

“They’re just waking up! We know just what they’ll do!
Their mouths will hang open a minute or two,
And then all the saints will all cry boo-hoo.

“That noise,” said the world, “will be something to hear.”
So it paused and the world put a hand to its ear.

And it did hear a sound coming through all the skies.
It started down low, then it started to rise.

But the sound wasn’t depressed.
Why, this sound was triumphant!
It couldn’t be so!
But it grew with abundance!

The world stared around, popping its eyes.
Then it shook! What it saw was a shocking surprise!

Every saint in every nation, the tall and the small,
Was celebrating Jesus in spite of it all!

It hadn’t stopped Easter from coming! It came!
Somehow or other, it came just the same!

And the world with its life quite stuck in quarantine
Stood puzzling and puzzling.
“Just how can it be?”

“It came without bonnets, it came without bunnies,
It came without egg hunts, cantatas, or money.”

Then the world thought of something it hadn’t before.
“Maybe Easter,” it thought, “doesn’t come from a store.
Maybe Easter, perhaps, means a little bit more.”

And what happened then?
Well....the story’s not done.
What will YOU do?
Will you share with that one
Or two or more people needing hope in this night?
Will you share the source of your life in this fight?

The churches are empty - but so is the tomb,
And Jesus is victor over death, doom, and gloom.

So this year at Easter, let this be our prayer,
As the virus still rages all around, everywhere.

May the world see hope when it looks at God’s people.
May the world see the church is not a building or steeple.
May the world find Faith in Jesus’ death and resurrection,
May the world find Joy in a time of dejection.
May 2020 be known as the year of survival,
But not only that -
Let it start a revival.
Thank you dear church! I am very glad that I can speak with you and see your service to God! I am glad that you are not indifferent and that you are praying for me and love me! You are good people. May God bless you!
Here's John Mark Davidson at Dallas City Hall.

This week, the Skillman Youth Group had their Dallas Work Camp. They served at Buckner Shoes, Austin Street Center, City Square, and other places. It was a wonderful week filled with fun, service, laughter, joy, worship, and community. Please be in prayer for our students as they will be taking only a couple days off and heading to Camp 51 at Lake Lavon on Sunday.

A few weeks ago, some of our ministers visited various civil rights landmarks where they were challenged to view events both then and now through the lens of faith.

This first picture is of John Mark and Hezekiah Watkins after a freedom service in Jackson, Mississippi. Hezekiah Watkins was the youngest member of the Freedom Rider movement to be arrested and jailed at 13 years of age for seeking equality under the law during the Freedom Summer in 1961.

You should ask them all about their trip! Also, be on the lookout for video footage of this experience in a couple weeks.

What a sweet gift Ruth Ann was given this past Sunday to remind her of Royce. This puppet was Royce’s alter ego as David explained. It will hang in our church building to remind everyone of his fun-loving and goofy spirit.

This week’s #TestimonyTuesday is from longtime beloved member, worker, and friend of the Skillman family, Michael Cox. Here’s his story...

“Born in Chicago in 1964, I am the youngest of four. I have two brothers and one sister. We have the same mother and different fathers. I lived in one part of town and them in another. We were and are close today. I wish as kids we would have lived together but it never was. I feel I had a good childhood until the age of 10 when my parents divorced, and my safe world fell apart. I believe at that time I lost all sense of security, and I had this big void in my life. My mom remarried, and John was a good man. He died of a heart attack while I was holding his hand sitting on the floor waiting for an ambulance. I was 12 when my mom remarried remarried again and Lloyd was abusive to me which I let no one know. When my mom figured it out, she kicked Lloyd out. But before the divorce was final and right before my 14th birthday, my mom died suddenly from a blood clot in her head. I needed help with what was going on inside my head, but being a kid and not knowing to ask for help, I was in trouble. My dad had remarried when I was about 13, and when my mom died they came and got me. That didn’t go well. I needed help, and that didn’t come for a long time. By 16 or 17 I came to Texas and lived on the farm with my grandma. From about 14 years old and on I was doing drugs and drinking. These days turned into months and months turned into years. I ended up in prison for drugs. I found myself in the faith based dorm where I asked Jesus into my life. That also has turned from days to months to years walking out on the steps God puts in my life daily. When I was released from prison the programs I was in led me to groups at Skillman. And here I am today still at Skillman not only as a member but an employee. All glory to God. God is a chain breaker.”

This week’s #TestimonyTuesday is from a wonderful member and friend at our church, Kathleen Williamson. She is involved in many things including praise team and the missions committee. Here’s her story...

“When I was asked to give my testimony, I said I don’t have a testimony. I grew in the church. It’s all I ever knew. My dad has been an elder for over 20 years, my mom taught Bible school when I was little and still does today. I have always known Jesus is the Son of God and my Saviour. But that is a shallow response so that I don’t have to actually share. The truth is, I have always struggled with having a personal relationship with God. So my testimony, such as it is, isn’t inspirational or aspirational.

I didn’t get baptized until I was 16, which seemed a bit old for someone that grew up surrounded by Christian examples. I was at summer camp and felt an overwhelming need to get baptized. I didn’t do so before because it always seemed there was something more to being baptized, something I just wasn’t getting. Otherwise, baptism itself seemed too simple. I would hear people talking about their personal relationships with God, and I felt like I was missing something. I didn’t feel like I had a personal relationship. I didn’t feel an emotional connection with God. I remember crying to a friend in high school because I didn’t know if I truly loved God. How could I know for sure?

But I knew, intellectually, that God loves me. And I knew, intellectually, that Jesus is my Saviour, that he was sent by God the Father to die for me on the cross. There is no doubt that this is true. But knowing this in my head isn’t enough. I have always struggled with knowing this wholeheartedly, emotionally as well as intellectually. And I still struggle with this. Some days I feel close to God, but most I feel so far away. But I know my journey isn’t done, and God still loves me and is working in me.”

This week’s #TestimonyTuesday is brought to you by one of our teens, Patricio Alcazar. Pato is a sophomore at Townview High School. We are so lucky to have him at our church. Here’s his story...

“To be honest, I never thought I would be in the place I am now with God. Growing up I was never really focused in church and I never really dedicated my life to it. I would usually go with my grandmother to church on Sundays but that was about it. Then when I arrived at Dallas I went to another catholic church and again I was never really inspired to go to church every Sunday. It was all until I came to Skillman. I feel like I have changed ever since I stepped foot there. I was able to find a family there and find God at the same time, which I think makes me very fortunate. My vision has definitely opened and I find myself not being as myopic as I once was. It has truly changed the way I live my life now and I can relate to the word of the Bible more and more as time progresses. I feel safer and I worry less when I center my life around the Bible and God. It has truly been a blessing being able to have such a caring force around me that I know I can count on and I plan on being able to growing and maturing more.”
