Easter Day 2010

Carol & I wanted to send Easter Greetings to everyone at CFSR. For several years now with our UK Church (see http://www.bawtryevangelicalchurch.com) we have had a dawn service on a hill near Bawtry on Easter Morning. Sometimes there has been snow! I guess you will not experience snow in Siem Reap on Sunday morning.

May you know a real sense of God's presence on this special day for Christians. Just recently we have been learning a new hymn which one of the folk in the church has written. Two verses of this is our prayer for you this Easter:

May I commend my Saviour A man who loved the lost;
Whose passion for the broken Would take him to a cross?
May I speak about his mercy, Draw attention to his grace;
Endear you to the beauty Of his blood-forsaken face?

May I take you to the graveside Where dejected women cried;
To a meeting with an angel Who proclaimed the crucified?
May I direct you to the tombstone That was rolled across the grave;
Fix your eyes upon the linen Which my Saviour cast aside?

May we all keep focussed on Jesus and may God bless you as you share our Saviour's love with others.
