VIDEO: Holy Week service proclaims Christ on Capitol steps
Bigger than elections and bills and presidents and kings. It was the theme of the first Holy Week Worship Service at the Iowa Capitol on Monday, March 21.
“We’ve had rallies here for issues,” said Bob Vander Plaats, president and CEO of The FAMiLY LEADER, from the west steps of the Iowa Capitol. “It’s easy to get people here to rally around an issue.”
“But we need to think bigger,” he said, “to think way beyond the issues.”
Both Vander Plaats and Pastor Mike Housholder of Lutheran Church of Hope, Iowa’s largest church, declared those who look only to Capitol Hill for help, ironically, need to lift their eyes just a little farther:
“I lift up my eyes to the hills. From where does my help come? My help comes from the LORD, who made heaven and earth” ~ Psalms 121:1-2.
