SUNDAY'S sermon

April 18, 2021

The women who went to the tomb Easter morning were NOT looking for life. Even though Jesus had talked about resurrection more than once, there was nothing in the way they were wired to think or imagine that could have possibly prepared them to anticipate something so other-worldly. This side of the Empty Tomb and this far beyond the resurrection of Jesus, it’s a bit different for us when we hear the question the women are asked, “Why do you look for the living among the dead?” (Luke 24:5) But what would we say if the angels/men asked that question of us – RIGHT NOW – especially those of us who profess to believe, follow and “root” ourselves in a resurrected Jesus? Where do we look . . . WHERE HAVE WE BEEN looking for life?

Learning to Lament with jesus

As we journey through Lent, we will listen carefully to Jesus's last words from the cross, words shaped by the prayers He used throughout His life from the Old Testament (His Bible). These prayers – called laments – are honest cries to God, filled with the emotions of anger and despair. They are not the polite prayers many of us were taught to pray, but do allow us to come close to God as we are, honest about what we see in us and around us. Join us as we enter into a time of reflection, confession and worship and “Learn to Lament With Jesus.”
