The season of Eastertide is the fifty day celebration between Resurrection Sunday and Pentecost. The once barren lenten altar is dressed in gold and white to symbolize Christ’s triumph over darkness, sorrow, sin, and death. The freshly cut flowers represent our joy of new life as we celebrate Jesus’ victory over the grave. The vibrant colors of the stained glass surrounding the cross remind us that the power that raised Christ from the dead is still at work redeeming and renewing this world and each of our lives.
Sermons at Pearl seek to engage the ancient stories, poems, and letters in the Bible through imaginative oration that rouses our wholeness as human beings. The act of the sermon at Pearl is space to ponder the sacred, opportunity to consider the mystery and love of God, and provocation to slow down, to think deeply, and to be stirred and inspired to bountifully live.
