It was a nice experience
I have lived in Brewton 17 years, and Tuesday, I did something I have never done before during my tenure in Brewton – I took part in one of Brewton’s Holy Week services.
Now while I was on the clock working during the time, it was nice to exprience one of the special events this city has to offer.
I have always heard of the Holy Week services during the week of Easter, but I have never been able to attend one.
It was nice to see people take time out of their busy days to come sing and worship together during their lunch break.
Some came in casual clothes; some in work clothes, and others came in dresses and suits.
During yesterday’s service, the Rev. Parker Johnson of Brewton’s First Presbyterian Church delivered the message at Brewton’s First Baptist Church.
One thing about the services that I have always thought was neat was that a different pastor from the local churches spoke on a certain day, but not at his home church.
Anyways, if you missed Tuesday’s service, Rev. Johnson had a good message as he talked about monuments and the monuments that represent the things the country has been through. We have monuments of presidents, war monuments and other things.
But as a Christian, the greatest monument of all time is the testimony that God sent his one and only son to die on the cross for our sins and that monument is the cross of Jesus.
I encourage you to take part in the remaining three services the rest of the week. A complete schedule of the remaining services can be found on the Faith page in today’s paper on page 6.
I want to wish all a great rest of the week, spring break and a happy Easter on Sunday.
Until we meet again here or somewhere else, God bless.
