The disciples were grieving. So are we.
Revelation from this time of pandemic can help us understand God’s call to us
Guest preacher Rev. Laura Everett invites us to “Come On in the Room” with the risen Christ.
The scattered church searches for hope and joy in the resurrection. Join us for inspiring music, word, and prayer.
It was a long road from Palm Sunday to Easter,
It was Uncomfortable – as Jesus turned over tables in the Temple and called out the religious leaders.
It was lonely – as his closest friends turned their backs on him to try and protect themselves.
It was terrifying as their leader was sentenced to death by the government and then strung up on a tree.
And through it all, they shouted “save us.”
And through it all, we shout “save us.”
I have never experienced a Lent like this year’s Lent. I have never walked so closely with the disciples in their distress and despair. I’ve never worried about when Lent will end and when Easter will come. But this year….
I do believe that Easter will come…but I’m pretty sure it’s not going to be on April 12.
I do believe that Easter will come but we have a lot more Lent to get through first.
I do believe that Easter will come. It will come on whatever Sunday we are able to physically gather together again and on that day we will celebrate the resurrection, we will bask in the glory of God and community, we will shout and sing Hallelujah.
Easter will come but it’s not on our timeline.
Apocalypse is a Greek word meaning “revelation”,
This crisis is revealing our God given gifts, revealing our strength and courage, revealing the love that we all share, revealing the ways that our love can be expressed.
God’s love has been revealed to us. Our love is being revealed in every moment. Thanks be to God.
It’s not the virus that God is sending, it’s the messengers –
It’s all of us when we…
Choose knowledge over fear;
Use only what we need;
Understand each others fears;
Protect the vulnerable;
Lead with empathy.
From the ones who had much, Jesus asks for more. From the one in need, Jesus asks nothing
