Holy Week: A Letter to West Franklin

Holy Week: A Letter to West Franklin April 9, 2022
West Franklin Family,
Tomorrow morning we will gather on the first day of Holy Week. The week named for the final days leading to Christ’s death, burial, and resurrection. The week that included real events that changed the course of history. Events that changed the eternal fate of every believing human. Events that still change our lives on a continuous basis to this day. Holy. Beautiful. Excruciating. Dark. Light. Night. Day. Pain. Exhilaration. Holy Week. I strongly encourage you to spend some significant time this week meditating on what happened 2,000 years ago. Ponder. Consider. Pray. Worship. Cry. Laugh. Wonder. Remember. Repent. Rejoice. Below are several links to assist. Sites to shed light. Music to enjoy. Scriptures to guide and help you enter into. Opportunities for you to participate.
