Welcoming All, Empowered by Christ, Sent Forth to Serve

April 16, 2017 message: “Giving Up Death”

Jesus’ rising on Easter morning was more than a showy miracle to shock and awe his attackers and followers. When Jesus rose, he turned the entire order of the universe on its head. The Resurrection shows us that Death does not have the last word. God has the last word, and that word is Life. Suffering and Death end, but God’s Kingdom lasts forever.
