Now what? Seven months ‘til Christmas? Sadly, there are scores of people that feel exactly that way. Now don’t misunderstand, I’m a great advocate of remembering the resurrection. And I’d be lying if I didn’t say it’s a great blessing for a pastor to see visitors on any weekend of the year. Easter Sunday is one of those days where visitors are not only welcome, but also expected. Pastors have an opportunity to preach the Gospel to more people on Easter Sunday than probably any Sunday of the year. So, if you attended church for the first time since Christmas yesterday, I’m certain the pastor was glad to see you there.
