April 10, 2020 Shane’s Good Friday Message

Williamsville United Methodist Church

These early hours between Good Friday and the Sunday Resurrection were surely filled with fear and anxiety among the followers. Thoughts clouded with, what if, what now?!?

This is the Sabbath according to the Jewish law, meaning they (the disciples) were at rest. After their leader, teacher, friend, who they knew as the Messiah has been crucified. 

Almost made to sit and ponder what just happened?!? 

This day will you sit and ponder for some time, what.. just… happened? We have a different understanding because we know what tomorrow looks like. But this is a great opportunity to thank God for what he has done, be in his presence and connect in a fresh way. Be still and be ready, for Sunday is on the way! See you Sunday
