Easter Sunday – With You Always
Posted by CC on April 9, 2012
Easter comes again with its theme of hope and renewal. Though the day holds complications for some, it also brings universal themes that can be instructive for all of us. The message this Sunday morning, April 8, from the Reverend Danny Reed is one of life, death, birth and renewal.
In addition to the sermon, this podcast also includes a bit more of the service including some of the music and a poem read by our beloved Director of Religious Education, Janet Watts.
Thank you to all who participated in this wonderful occasion – from the folks who cooked and server breakfast, to the springtime dancers, to those who hid Easter eggs, to the youth looking after the the much younger youth. It was a wonderful day made possible by the giving and joyful spirit of everyone involved.
The book selection for this Easter week is Love & Death: My Journey through the Valley of the Shadow by the late Reverend Forrest Church. On February 4, 2008, Forrest Church sent a letter to the members of his congregation, informing them that he had terminal cancer but promising to sum up his thoughts on the topics that had been so pervasive in his work-love and death. The goal of life, Church tells us, “is to live in such a way that our lives will prove worth dying for.” This moving book is imbued with ideas and exemplars for achieving that goal.
