Sunday Morning

There is something about Sunday morning.

As I sit here with my coffee and my chromebook, I have to wonder why Sunday morning feels different than any other morning. So far there is nothing different about this day than any other day. There is just a different feel about Sunday morning. It is a calming feeling; a feeling that everything is going to be okay. Maybe it is in the anticipation of what is ahead for the day. I don't know. I can't really explain it.

For some reason, I wanted to hear this song this morning. It's a weird song to want to hear. It's a little bit depressing. But in it, I also hear a message of hope -- that no matter what has happened during the week (or even the night before), today is a new day, a new chance, a new beginning. Somehow Sunday morning gives us time for reflection. And even though reflection can sometimes make us feel isolated and alone, somehow, Sunday morning says to me everything will be okay.

Whether you plan on attending a worship service today or just taking a Sunday stroll, it is as if you get to start over. You can leave last week behind you and begin a new week. I'm going to start my week by meeting with my friends at Hopedale and worshiping our God. I hope that you will meet with others and worship our God, as well.

Leave the events of last week behind you.
Have no worries about what the future may or may not bring.
Celebrate today!
It's Sunday!
