We spent a beautiful evening at The Depot at the Mound Beach gathered by candlelight at the foot of the cross meditating on the passion story. About 25 people showed up for our journey to the cross. We read, reflected and prayed through the passion story, sang a couple hymns, and marveled at the spectacular full moon shining down on Lake Minnetonka just a few feet from us! One of those attending shared afterwards, “I first gave my life to Christ 33 years ago under a full moon identical to this at a Bible camp; tonight I met Him once again.”
As we slowly extinguished the final candles around the cross and looked up at the bright moon, I couldn’t help but think of John 1:5:
“The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it!”
See you at the empty tomb on Sunday as we usher in the Rising Son!
