In spite of all we have heard and all that we have seen, it is often hard to believe. Because it is hard to believe, we will invest ourselves in the Easter mystery for fifty days (a week of weeks). Because it is hard to believe, John the evangelist will provide sign after sign celebrating Jesus’ victory over death. Because it is hard to believe, the Lord Jesus will return to us again and again in the mystery of the holy communion, inviting us to touch and taste his presence, and offering us his peace.
Readings: Acts 5:27-32, Psalm 118:14-29, Revelation 1:4-8, John 20:19-31
We had a wonderful Easter with over 100 people at worship and more guests at bruch. More than 25 kids hunted for Easter eggs in the park, and we welcomed 6 new (awesome!) members: Ralph, Jacob, Willa, Mary, Patti and Zebedee.
