Easter Sunday March 27. Alleluia. He is truly risen.

Written by Jack van Ommen on March 27th, 2016

Happy Easter to all. Alleluia! God is alive and well in Gig Harbor. Standing room only at the three services in my parish St. Nicholas. I sang in the small choir at five Easter services since Maundy Thursday. Last night 8 boys and men were baptized. The two trumpet players playing Beethoven’s Ode to Joy. A contagious joy. God, singing and sailing, friends and family. Because I cannot use flash in the church the pictures appear grainy.
