Paul went from being early Christianity’s biggest threat to being its biggest proponent, following an unexpected and life-changing encounter with the risen Christ. We may not match the high drama of Paul’s story, but what can we learn about how God transforms individual identity and uses us as instruments in God’s unfolding story?
It’s Jesus’ first post-resurrection appearance. The disciples, understandably afraid, were holed up, locked inside, unsure and uncertain about what would happen next. Jesus came to them, showed them his wounds and breathed the Holy Spirit upon them. Bring your hope, fear, doubts, struggles…bring it all and come as you are!
We have been intentional this Lent in our exploration of what it means to be “filled to the brim” and to lean into the abundant and expansive life to which God calls us. There is no day that “overflows” with God’s love and grace more than Easter.
Good Friday marks the day when hate and fear did their worst…the day of Jesus’ crucifixion. On this day of grief and sorrow, we will gather with one another, in God’s care, to remember Jesus’ death on a cross.
