It all comes down to this. Without this story, without this sacrifice, Jesus’ teachings, his miracles, his witness to the never-ending love of God would have barely made the footnotes of some scholar’s dissertation. But this story, from betrayal to resurrection, made God’s love palpable in the deepest reaches of our human experience.  This week, we enter deeply into the mysteries of our faith. Please join us!  

Note: The Easter Sunday Intergenerational service is designed for engagement with the whole family. Children will remain in the Sanctuary (Additional activity bulletins will be available for them.) The 10 a.m. service is the only livestreamed presentation.  

Everything Changes
In our sermon series we are exploring how our brains were designed to be suspicious of change, and for good reason–homeostasis in good measure helps us thrive, protecting us from danger. But if we look closely at what the Creator set in motion, we find that change is the most constant part of life and necessary for animating our spirits as we find renewed purpose throughout life. Jesus advocated for changes that would keep us moving toward greater goodness!  “Everything Changes” John 12:20-26 In our scripture this week Jesus asks us to let go of life “as it is” in order to create and multiply the love that is eternal. What feels like the chaos, or recklessness, of change is the breaking-open of possibility and the sprouting of new life. This is what it means to follow the change-maker Jesus and serve his purpose of more love in the world. -Pastor Courtney
