After a small, family burial service due to COVID restrictions, we were finally able to hold a memorial service for our friend and sister Glenda Bryant on October 2, 2021.
Resurrection is not a return to old life, but the gospel story happening right in the middle of our story!
God doesn’t play around in all’s well that ends well. God deals in resurrection. God deals in new life. God deals in redemption. God deals in grace.
With our return to indoor, in-person worship, the audio file for this sermon was not captured at high enough quality to post here.
Easter is not a return to normal. Easter is not a return to anything. Easter is all of our death, redeemed.
Sometimes you have to know the ending to make sense of the beginning of the story.
There is no control; there is only listening for the voice of God.
