  • …. and more

 

 

Screen shot 2013-03-26 at 11.06.58 AMWe have entered a long weekend drama, full of mystery and grief.

But on Sunday, Easter morning will rise – we know it to be so! – and we will gather that evening at our usual worship time, to proclaim,

CHRIST IS RISEN INDEED.

 

Join us.

Why?

A Prayer Poem by Mary Sue Rosenberger

When bombs kill innocent children,
the world asks, “Why?”
When earthquakes rip nations apart,
People ask, “Why does God
allow such tragedies?”
When injustice steals from the ‘have-nots’
to enrich the ‘haves’,
We ask, “Where is God
and God’s justice?”
Understandable but unanswerable questions
from a human perspective.
But,
Go back to Good Friday.
Take it upon yourself:
feel the innocent suffering,
watch the mindless cruelty,
experience the helplessness.
The answer is there!
Not in reason or logic,
but in the Logos of God
lynched on a cross.

Lent 2015

Screen shot 2013-03-26 at 11.07.19 AMJoin us for worship this liturgical season with an exploration of LENTEN MYSTERIES. From theologies of the Atonement to scapegoats to disciples’ confusion, the truths revealed in the stories of our Scripture only seem to unfold new mysteries to ponder.  And what is the calling for peacemakers through this long, difficult season of Lent?  Where is the hope and good news in the midst of suffering?

Explore with us and join in worship, every Sunday evening at 5pm Pacific time (8pm Eastern) for worship streaming from this link.
