ARE YOU WALKIN’? Directions Medical Clinic, formerly known as Pregnancy Resource Center, holds their annual WALK FOR LIFE TODAY at Hutchins Street Square! Registration at 8 am. The Walk kicks off at 9 am. Refreshments! Balloons! Face painting! And don’t miss the Baby Buggy Blitz race!
A HUNDRED BABIES A YEAR, most years. That’s how many clients of Directions choose to keep their babies after viewing their little bundle via sonogram. This is one organization I’m very happy to support.
TOMORROW is Easter Sunday, aka Resurrection Day to most followers of Jesus Christ. Contrary to popular culture, this Day is NOT about the resurrection of the Easter Bunny. Here’s what the Apostle Paul had to say about the events surrounding this day. He’s talking to Jewish Christians (Hebrews 12: 1 and 2):
“Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a huge crowd of witnesses to the life of faith, let us strip off every weight that slows us down, especially the sin that so easily trips us up. And let us run with endurance the race God has set before us.
“We do this by keeping our eyes on Jesus, the Champion who initiates and perfects our faith. Because of the joy awaiting Him, He endured the cross, disregarding its shame. Now He is seated in the place of honor beside God’s throne.” He is risen! I’m betting my (eternal) life on this. It’s a safe bet!
