Beacon of Light

Christ is Risen! Christ is Risen Indeed!

Last Sunday was Easter, but Easter isn’t over. We need the good news of resurrection and new life daily. And, the good news that God is with us in suffering, in good times and in bad times. This good news can bring us peace in the midst of fear, mercy in the midst of anxiety and hope in the midst uncertainty.

Brennan Manning writes:

The gospel is absurd and the life of Jesus is meaningless unless we believe that He lived, died, and rose again with but one purpose in mind: to make brand-new creation. Not to make people with better morals but to create a community of prophets and professional lovers, men and women who would surrender to the mystery of the fire of the Spirit that burns within, who would live in ever greater fidelity to the omnipresent Word of God, who would enter into the center of it all, the very heart and mystery of Christ, into the center of the flame that consumes, purifies, and sets everything aglow with peace, joy, boldness, and extravagant, furious love. This, my friend, is what it really means to be a Christian.

We are a beacon of light with our prayers, our love and our peace in a broken world.

Join us tomorrow at 10:00 am as we gather via the stream for worship to celebrate the peace of Christ.

Grace be with you,

Vikki
