Sermons from April 2019
This first Sunday after Easter, we may still be absorbing the wonder of Jesus’ resurrection – or perhaps, like Thomas, we want more certainty.
This Sunday is Easter Sunday! The day includes a sunrise service on Mission Bay, a fundraiser pancake breakfast, our traditional services with a brass quintet, and an Easter egg hunt for children. Jesus is risen! Hallelujah! Death isn’t the end! Love doesn’t die!
This Sunday’s service will be experienced as Passion Sunday, a somber reflection on the cruelty Jesus experienced in his last few hours before the crucifixion.
This Sunday’s song and text are among the most emotional of Jesus’ ministry. We are reminded us of Jesus’ humanity as he prays about being overwhelmed, about sorrow, and the plea to be spared from what he knows will come.
