And don't forget to refresh your understanding of the doctrine of the Trinity:

That is right up there with the Babylon Bee. I like Hans Fiene. On a serious note, are you sure you did not intend this link?

Need hope in this crazy world? Find hope this Easter season at your local Christian congregation.

Palm Sunday - March 25 (Jesus comes to Jerusalem, the people praise Him)

Maundy Thursday - March 29 (Jesus institutes the Lord's Supper)

Good Friday - March 30 (Jesus conquers death, those who believe His promises will live forever)

Easter Sunday - April 1 (Jesus rises from the dead, assures believers we will also rise from the dead)

Got hope? Join with fellow believers, hear the story, walk beside us with Jesus, find new hope for every day!

Occasionally the old hymns say it best...
[...]

Now our heav'nly Aaron enters With his blood within the veil;
Joshua now is come to Canaan, And the kings before Him quail.
Now He plants the tribes of Israel In their promised resting place;
Now our great Elijah offers Double portion of His grace.

Thou hast raised our human nature On the clouds to God's right hand;
There we sit in heavenly places, There with Thee in glory stand.
Jesus reigns, adored by angels; Man with God is on the throne.
Mighty Lord, in Thine ascension We by faith behold our own.


Glory be to God the Father; Glory be to God the Son,
Dying, risen, ascending for us, Who the heavenly realm hath won;
Glory to the Holy Spirit! To One God in Persons Three
Glory both in earth and heaven, Glory, endless glory, be.

I'm not Lutheran, but I sure have enjoyed hanging out with you robed folk in this thread. There must be some gold/LCMS link that needs to be further explored. Maybe it's an appreciation for barbarous relics.

This is a great sermon for those who celebrate the Ascension of Jesus. If you do not celebrate that, you can celebrate Mothers' Day, or my anniversary which is today. WooHoo 8)
