EASTER NEWSLETTER - 2015

PRELUDE TO WHOLENESS 

It started out innocently enough….It was another Spring day. It was another journey into Jerusalem. But, as the events began to unfold, it became stranger and stranger; almost to the point of being bizarre.

Here He was, the King of Kings, the Son of God, making His triumphal entry into Jerusalem. Now, if you were His PR person, wouldn’t you have him riding a great white horse with people in front throwing rose petals?
But instead, Jesus rode in on a small colt; a grown man on a small colt. The people, laid palm branches in front of Him shouting: “ Hosanna, Hosanna.
What a journey: That journey led to a trial that was not really a trial and crucifixion and a resurrection. What a special week! And it would be just another significant point in history except there was a message there; the Truth that Jesus taught was this:
What have you ever learned from anger…..except anger?
What have you ever learned from hatred…..except hatred?
What have you ever learned from love….except Love?

About a hundred years ago, a couple made a journey. It started out to be a normal journey. As the events unfolded, it became rather bizarre but the couple was healed. This was Charles and Myrtle Fillmore. And this would have been just another point in history, except they had a message. They had a Truth to tell that has transformed people’s lives. The Truth was:
What have you ever learned from anger……except anger
What have you ever learned from hatred….except hatred
What have you ever learned from love….except love
