New Sermon Series

"How to Find Easter in the Last Place You'd Look"

An Eastertide Sermon Series

In Christ God was reconciling the world to himself…and entrusting the message of reconciliation to us. (2 Corinthians 5:19).  Our relationship with God was mended--that is, reconciled--in the death and resurrection of Jesus.  Since then, that relationship-mending Easter power is loose in the world, especially when Christians are on the look-out for it.  Imagine what a difference we could make, bringing reconciliation wisdom right to the heart of the divisions that trouble our world.  In this sermon series (April 11-May 16), we will visit each biblical scene with the risen Jesus, to notice the dynamics of a spirituality of reconciliation, which belongs to us on this side of Easter.
