Sunday Worship Broadcast - May 5, 2019

We continue our Easter Worship series, “The Glory of a Resurrected Life” based on the lectionary scriptures from the Gospel of John. Reflecting on the post-resurrection stories of Jesus, we are urged to consider a holistic understanding of what it means to be a human being living a resurrected life. Rather than separating our body and soul, distinguishing between the physical and spiritual as distinct realms of being—the Bible portrays our lives and living as an affirmation of everything that is good about being human, created as we are in the image of God. How might we live into the resurrection from this holistic perspective? How might we realize all that God created us to be while confronting the limitations of our human experience? Come and learn as we grow together into God's vision of authenticity!

When has it been simple and straightforward? When has it not been so?
