We all want what Thomas wants: verifiable proof that Jesus is alive. But proof won't make you happy. Jesus says that believing will make you happy. This sermon explores that notion.
14 Locked in a Room of Fear (John 20:19-23)
On Easter Sunday, Thaddeus found himself locked in a room of fear. Hearing reports of resurrection, the embers of belief began to glow. But he saw Jesus himself, the embers burst into a flame of faith. No matter what fears have kept us locked up, Jesus words sets us us free to accept his commission.

According to Genesis, in the beginning God created; according to the Gospel of John, in the beginning was the Word... In both stories, God's Word creates life. Easter is life which the Word creates on the eighth day. Jesus is making all things new.

29 Into Your Hands I Commit My Spirit–A Good Friday Homily
A look at Jesus' final word spoken from the cross: Into Your Hands I Commit My Spirit. What does it all mean? More importantly, what does it mean to you?
24 It Is Finished
In Jesus' 6th word from the cross, "It is finished" (John 19:30, he may have been referring to completion of four achievements--life ended, suffering done, prophecies fulfilled, and sin's payment completed. Jesus' "bucket list"of achievements, to use today's vernacular, inspires what we too might list as our own priorities.
17 I Thirst
In Jesus' fifth words from the cross, "I thirst" (Jn. 19:28), he draws from Psalm 69 to describe the thirst of his own suffering and aloness on the cross. We, too, experience the thirst of suffering and aloneness from living in a broken world. He who thirsted offers water to the thirsty. From the cross, Jesus speaks to you and to me. Hear his invitation to come and drink from He who is able to satisfy your thirst.
10 My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?
We explore how the absence of God actually points us to God and ways we can follow Jesus even in forsakenness.

06 Pastoral Reflections
It is a standing tradition at Pearl Church for our pastoral staff to share about their lives on the first Sunday of the new year. There are a few reasons for this tradition. One reason is that we want our pastors to be known. This fosters better understanding of our pastors and, it can encourage you to offer particular prayers based on our pastor's reflections. Another reason we do this is to model authentic sharing. To be in community is to know each other's stories. And, another reason we do this is to encourage similar sharing in our church, among each other. It is a desire of this church to know and to be known. To accomplish this, we must share.
