On a Hill Too Far Away

The cross is central to our faith.  But in our world today, the cross can seem too far away, and too far removed to have significance in our lives.  Efforts have been made in some denominations to remove all mention of the cross and the blood of Christ from their sermons and hymnals.  The cross cannot be discounted.  The gruesome suffering of Jesus Christ must never be diminished.  We must draw near to the cross.  For it is there that we will catch a glimpse of our sin, and it is there we can find mercy and grace.

This year’s Easter program will address this very subject.  The title is On a Hill Too Far Away.  The musical is an adaptation of the book by John Fischer of the same name.  The choir will be presenting the program on Easter Sunday morning at 9:30.  All are invited to this special service.
