Loving Resurrection

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.

An Ode to Waking

An ode seeks to celebrate a particular subject in the form of a song or poem. In this same spirit, this sermon series intends to offer odes to several Easter themes that encourage our celebration of the sheer glory of Easter. Those themes that we will seek to laud will include gardens, peace, repentance, care, fruit, and love. Our hope in celebrating these themes however, is more than joy or thanksgiving. It is participation. We desire these themes to have meaning, relevance, and consequence for our community in this season of Easter, 2018.
