Christ is Risen!

April 16 @ 10:00 am

Join us in person or online for worship on Sundays at 10am. Before you join us for in person worship, please review our updated mask optional practice.

Easter is now one week behind us. All the leftovers from Sunday’s ham dinner have long been consumed along with the chocolates from plastic eggs. And then we come into worship to see the word EASTER still written on our bulletins, our liturgy yet proclaims “Christ is Risen!” and we continue with hymns singing of resurrection. Then we open our Bibles to the Gospel text for the day finding ourselves taken back in time where it is only evening of the day of Christ’s resurrection. The disciples are hiding in the upper room reeling from the events of the past three days. The women among them have spoken implausible things about an empty tomb and so they wait for confirmation, for Jesus to appear to them…from behind the doors they have locked. We too wonder if resurrection is real, if the tomb is truly empty and so we come to worship, driven by our curiosities, cautiously optimistic that like those earliest disciples Jesus will come to us. May it be so.
