I will have more to say about this later in the week, but Easter yesterday was quite unlike any other Easter I have been a part of. Our church, Bel Air Presbyterian Church celebrated Easter at The Hollywood Bowl. So we moved from about 5 services and 6,000 people last year, to one service and about 10,000 people this year. It was a very beautiful service and I especially loved the music, as the choir, the orchestra and the praise band did an amazing job of playing together. Our pastor, Mark Brewer delivered a wondeful Easter message and I was happy to see both, Bel Air goers, and first timers there.
This week is also a huge week in the life of our church as we celebrate 50 years as a church this week. I am looking forward to the huge celebration this weekend and on Sunday as all the former pastors of Bel Air are returning. This week is a wonderful reminder of God’s faithfulness to our community and to His people, and I am very thankful to be a part of this church.
