Third Sunday of Easter Sermon
April 14, 2024, 2:35 PM

In worship today we offered a prayer to remember that God is known in the practice of our communal gathering and the Eucharist. By living a life of faith fed by the Communion we have our eyes opened to God’s presence. Our first lesson was from the Acts of the Apostles and included Peter’s defense and attribution of how the man with a disability was healed and made whole. Peter tells the story of salvation and restoration through Jesus’ life and resurrection. The Psalmist sang a song which reminds us that God saves us and therefore, we need to sing God’s praises. The lesson from First John reminds us that we are God’s children and that our relationship with Jesus affirms our relationship with God. The sermon was loosely based on the gospel of Luke and the account of Jesus revealing, for the third time, that his resurrection was real and not simply mystical or imagined. Even as Jesus tells his story over and over again, 3 times in the first day to the disciples, we are called to tell our story of our relationship with God in Christ as often as we can so we can refine our message of hope and restoration.


Blessings to you all as the Easter season continues. I invite your comments,
