Thinking with Pastor Cornils:
Mount Olivet Volunteers are Easter People


May, 2015- I invite you to think of Easter not just as one day, but rather as an ongoing expression of spiritual energy and enthusiasm: a dynamic which explodes at the Resurrection of our Lord (Easter Sunday), crescendos throughout the seven Sundays / Weeks of Easter, climaxes on the Day of Pentecost (this year May 24), and continues even today!

Why think in terms of a much-expanded expression of Easter?

First, it takes much more than a day, actually more than a lifetime, to fully grasp the awesome good news that Christ, the Son of God, has died, Christ has risen, and Christ will come again! No matter how many times I pray, preach, and teach the message of Easter I feel woefully inadequate to stretch my mind, soul, and proclamation sufficient to express the grandeur of God’s salvation plan. At the very least, you and I require an expanded season of Easter in order for our thoughts, values, and priorities to be re-shaped in the light of eternity.

Moreover, the Holy Spirit is relentlessly working within us to expand our notion of Easter as celebrated in a special Sunday service to the breakthrough discovery that we get to worship our Lord through our service.

Our Mount Olivet volunteers shine among us as exemplary Easter servants. Your Mount Olivet pastors and staff are often amazed and frequently humbled to discover the many ways and means busy people like you are living and loving forward the light of Easter. Because of your generous sharing of time and energy in volunteer service expressed in myriad ministries throughout and beyond Mount Olivet, the beautiful light of Easter is shining in our communities like never before.

Thank you and God bless you! – Pastor Cornils
