During our time for the Young and Young at Heart as part of yesterday’s Easter Service, we took a quick and very unscientific survey about people’s favorite Easter candy. It began with lots of the chocolate varieties being mentioned, and then 4 year old Dillon suggested jelly beans.
Pretty quickly Jelly Belly jelly beans came up (this pastor’s favorite), and from there we went to Belly Flops; the ‘irregular’ Jelly Belly jelly beans that are sold in 2lb. bags.
They’re every bit as good as the ‘regular’ beans, just sometimes 2 or 3 connected, or a bean is shaped differently, or too big. When I can get a mega jelly bean…that’s better than ‘regular’ good.
When I think of Jesus’ resurrection, His offer of new life is because God sees goodness in all – the ‘regular’ folks we are quick to notice – and those that society sadly believes are ‘irregular’ yet are every bit as good – and maybe have even more to offer.
Join us Sundays at 10AM with whatever goodness you have to bring; we’re glad to have it.
Together We Serve,
