Meet our Pastor

Rev. F. David Broussard

Message from the Pastor

Dear Friends,

 I joked last weekend that if any of you notice one of those creepy-crawly little caterpillars slinking on me, you have my permission to flick it off!  They might give us the “heeby-jeebies” for a little while, but we know that those fuzzy little critters and the few thousand of their friends with them aren’t really coming to get us.  They’re just munching as much as they can before settling into some snug little cocoon somewhere, and we’ll soon be rid of them!  But, of course, that’s not the end of their story.  Soon enough, they’re transformed into moths and butterflies.  They get their wings! 

 One of the most consoling things, I think, the Apostle Paul has to say about death (for ourselves or our loved-ones)…and our own transformations…is “life is changed…not ended.”  When you think of it, hadn’t Jesus sort of given folks a few “previews of coming attractions” to His own Transformation/Resurrection?  He raised that young man being carried out to the cemetery.  He raised Jairus’ little twelve-year-old daughter.  He raised His own buddy Lazarus, once He showed up four days “late” for the funeral.  He showed them, and us, that life and death are in His hands.  But, those He raised had to eventually face human death all over again.  It would be different with His own Resurrection. 

I was reading somewhere recently that the early Christians, when they began painting pictures and icons of the Resurrection, showed God the Father’s Hand pulling Christ up from the grave—kind of like Michelangelo’s finger of God reaching out to the limp hand of Adam.  Later, they portrayed Jesus, standing on the open grave in triumph, pulling up Adam and Eve from the pit.  Tombs and human cocoons are made obsolete.  He is risen, and it’s a GIFT He shares with a few thousand…millions…billions of His friends.  You’re one of them, aren’t you? 

 Have a blessed week.
