The HBC Back Page is a weekly column appearing on the back of the church bulletin each Sunday, often including church news, anecdotes, book reviews, or comments from Pastor.

It was still dark, the sun was just starting to rise, faithful women disciples were stirring and anxious. They did not sleep much that night and were up before the dawn. Off to the tomb where the sacred body of our Lord lay. The earth shook, the stone was rolled away, and the angels observed with a celestial curiosity. The Spirit of Christ was re-united with that marred body as it lay in the tomb – Glorious resurrection morn! We are delighted that you are with us this Sunday to celebrate the bodily resurrection of Jesus of Nazareth. We echo the words of the angel, “He is not here, He is risen, as He said”
(Matthew 28:6).

It is that time of the year for church softball. Men, there is a sign up sheet on the main bulletin board, and we are scheduling games for May and June. If you know of a business that would like to play – see Pastor Bruce for scheduling.

Thinking of baseball – be sure to set aside Friday night, May 20th, as we will premiere the new film Milltown Pride from Unusual Films [BJU]. Two churches in NJ are premiering this film before it is released to the general public. Admission is free, and the Friday night film will be at 7 PM. Invite a friend.

Overheard… Lord, keep your arm around my shoulder and your hand over my mouth.

Asa, now 17, passed his driving test this past week. Liz and I are starting to feel…. you know! I remember the day he was born, the day of the Phils’ home opener that year. Somehow, Pastor Haines and I still went to the game that day. – Pastor
