Sunday's Scripture: John 20:19-31
The pastor's latest poem invites you to feel the heart of Peter. Do you truly love me?
stmumc.com He returned to his home from Jerusalem. He began fishing again, his ordinary job in Galilee. The last three years he had walked and worked with Jesus. It seemed like a dramatic dream: unexpected, exciting, awe-inspiring, and frustrating, painful, confusing, shameful. His heart always burned for Jesu...

Gary Scott shared this poem with us: "How the Virus Stole Easter" by Kristi Bothur, with a nod to Dr. Seuss. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did.
"How the Virus Stole Easter"
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.
With the Coronavirus pandemic season,
St. Mark's prepares for Easter season
our Choir, a Cantata, the Holy Thursday worship service,
lilies, Sunday school or our Easter potluck lunch.
We prepare for Easter worship service 2020
with only fasting souls.
Lord, must you not want only this?
Why would someone betray Jesus? Money? Power? Failed expectations? This Sunday’s sermon considers Judas’s betrayal of Jesus. Our worship service will be recorded and will be posted here once its ready. We hope you will worship with us online.
Sunday's Sermon: “What Will You Give Me?”
Sunday's Scripture: Matthew 26:14-30
I hope you take time to contemplate the pastor's latest poem.
If you are uncomfortable with poetry, try considering these lines: "Betrayal inscribes painful marks in the deep hearts, both of the betrayed and the betrayer." How does Judas's betrayal mark Jesus's heart? How does Jesus respond? And how does betrayal mark Judas's heart? How does Judas respond? Is there any hope for Judas?
If you share your answers in the comments, we can all broaden our appreciation of the poem.
stmumc.com Truly, truly, I know one of you will betray Me. He is going to hand me over to my enemies. Jesus’s heart was broken, and Judas’ breathing stopped in that moment. Betrayal inscribes painful marks in the deep hearts, both of the betrayed and the betrayer. But Jesus said to him, “What you do, do ...

A little planning now will allow you to head to bed an hour early on Saturday so that you will rested and ready for worship on Sunday morning instead of laying in bed hitting the snooze button again and again.

Poetry demands that we slow down, read and feel. Because of this, it is tempting to scroll on by when in Facebook. But, poetry is worth the time it takes.
