Saved by God's mercy and called by the Holy Spirit,

                                    we share the Good News of Christ by reaching out in love.

Easter Sunday 
By Pastor DeWayne Teig

 

An excerpt from the sermon:

 

And yet, this day of Easter is the celebration when we recall all of our sins are lifted from us
through the cross of Christ! All the crud we carry around with us that reminds us of death has
been swallowed up in the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ!


Can you believe it? Many people cannot…


For the majority of us, our lives seem to unfold day after day in similar fashion to Holy Saturday,
yesterday’s in-between day, standing with Good Friday on one side and still waiting for Easter to
arrive.


The truth is our lives are lived out for better or worse between the womb and tomb. And it’s hard
for us to imagine the true reality of Easter resurrection because it does not fit into our
understanding of how the world works.


We can be certain we will someday die, but to rise again, that part is just a little harder to
comprehend.


If this is true for you, you are in good company with the skeptics who were there for that very
first Easter morning ever.
