Scriptures includes: Acts 4:5-12 and 1 John 3:16-24

Rev. Dr. Libby Grammer will preach a sermon entitled, “Give it up for Jesus!”

The law of love guides us as followers of Jesus. We love God by loving our neighbors – all of them. And we do it not just in our speech (though that’s important too) but also in truth and action. We need to give up our own selves for the sake of others.

Today is the Fourth Sunday of Easter. Easter Sunday was the beginning of the season of Eastertide in the liturgical year. Eastertide is celebrated from Easter Sunday for fifty days, until the day of Pentecost, and focuses on the meaning of Christ’s resurrection. The liturgical color is white, symbolizing light, victory, and eternal life.

Scriptures includes: Acts 3:12-29 and 1 John 3:1-7

Rev. Dr. Libby Grammer will preach a sermon entitled, “Change is Hard”

We have been adopted as God’s children, 1 John tells us. But it’s hard to recognize our new selves, much less have the rest of the world recognize how different we are as we are transformed into the likeness of Christ. And we still experience our own brokenness, yet God’s claim on our souls says we’re forgiven and made whole. Growing in faith may be a hard process, but the payoff is worth it. And what does that look like in community? Check out Acts 3.

Scriptures includes: Psalm 133 and John 20:19-23

Rev. Dr. Libby Grammer will preach a sermon entitled, “Unlocked Doors”

It seems very appropriate this year as we start to move out of pandemic life into post-pandemic life and we literally unlock the doors and as safely as we can and gather indoors for worship together, that we read with fresh eyes our text from John 20. Jesus appears to the disciples “behind locked doors” after the resurrection. He gives them peace (and boy, don’t we need that after the year we’ve had!) and then he gives them the Holy Spirit and says, “I have a job for you to do.” And he sends them as apostles to forgive sins and share this story of Good News. We have more peace than we’ve had in a year, and now we’re being called to go from disciples (the followers) to apostles (the sent). Are we ready to receive that peace and do that work?

Scriptures includes: Isaiah 25:6-9 and Mark 16:1-8

Rev. Dr. Libby Grammer will preach a sermon entitled, “The Short and the Long of It

Mark’s Gospel is the shortest of the four stories of Jesus in the New Testament. Our passage for this Easter Sunday is from the short ending of Mark (years later, the longer ended would work to clarify some things). But what does it mean when Mark’s initial ending stops at the terror that seizes those first disciples to encounter the empty tomb? The short version: “Christ has been raised. Go tell the disciples…and they were seized with terror and amazement and did not say anything to anyone.” The long version: “What now?” May our resurrection experience be one of such awe and amazement, yet also one that keeps Easter alive well past our hushed wonder, all the way to the shouts of alleluia to all who can hear it!

Today is Easter Sunday, the joyous celebration of the resurrection of Jesus Christ! Easter Sunday marks the end of Holy Week, the end of the season of Lent, and is the beginning of Eastertide in the liturgical year. Eastertide is celebrated from Easter Sunday for fifty days, until the day of Pentecost, and focuses on the meaning of Christ’s resurrection. The liturgical color is white, symbolizing light, victory, and eternal life.
