Dear Soul Cafe Family,
Oh, how we miss one another. In one more way we are finding out how important being with one another in flesh and blood is to us. It is bound to be at the root of why Our Father sent Jesus to us in flesh and blood. It is so crucial in telling us that He is with us.
They will be second best substitutes, but we are going to try something this Resurrection weekend. We are going to take communion together via YouTube, and we are going to attempt to live stream a sunrise service (for all the early birds out there).
At about sunset on Friday evening we will post a video on YouTube that will lead us through the Lord’s last meal with his friends before his death. It will be very simple and brief. We will read the story from Scripture and then take the supper together. Here is what you will need to do. First, go to youtube.com on your computer. Then type in “Soul Cafe Communion” in the search bar. It will bring up a video of Lorri and I at the thicket house. I will lead us in taking the meal together. You can do it anytime for the rest of Friday evening or Saturday morning.
The second thing you will want to do is to have something that will represent the body and the blood of Christ. Lorri and I will be using a biscuit and grape juice. You can use what you have available to you. Then put on your best imagination hat and know that somehow we are taking this meal together.
The Resurrection Sunrise Service live stream will begin at 6:40 am April 12. Sunrise is at 7:03 am here in Ledbetter. It is our best way of being together. If you can’t make it at 6:40 you can watch the recording on our Soul Cafe Facebook page anytime on Sunday.
You are the most loving and courageous people on the face of the planet. Lorri and I love you to pieces and can’t wait to be back with you so very soon.
He is Risen.
He is Risen Indeed!!!
