    Jesus' sacrifice to become the savior of the world.

    Mary Magdalene was one of the eyewitnesses of the resurrection. She was the last one at the cross and the first one at the tomb. She had to answer three Easter questions that day, and these are the same three questions that each of us must answer today.

    INTRODUCTION There’s something exciting about a countdown. As a boy growing up in LA, lower Alabama, I can remember my family crowded around a small black-and-white television set as the camera was focused on a launch pad in Cape Canaveral, Florida. The year was 1962 and Astronaut John more

The readings assigned for today are: Acts 4:32-35; Psalm 133:1-5; 1 John 1:1-2:2 and John 20:19-31 Early on the morning of December 7, 1941, ......two airmen ... who had just taken their post at a radar more

    based on 1 rating

    The resurrection shows us the overwhelming grace of God and the overwhelming humaneness of man. The disciples were afraid and confused after the death of Jesus. Look deep in the tomb and see the reality of the resurrection and the response it requires

    Intro: I heard about a church organist who overslept one Easter morning. She said, "The service was scheduled for 6:30. At 6:31, the minister called to see if I was coming. Since I live near the church, I was at the organ by 6:45. Then, a year later on Easter morning my phone rang at 5:45. When I more

    A sermon for Easter.

    "I've Seen the Lord" John 20:1-18 I was a history minor in college and there really isn't a whole lot about history that changes. I think that's one reason I liked history. It was kind of like reading a book. This is what happened. Learn it. Remember it and you will do more

    The day of Jesus resurrection was a day of the unexpected, are we open to the unexpected taht God puts before us so that we might live in understanding of him and by his power?

    Easter Sunday, expectations. I may have mentioned Nikolai Ivanovich Bukharin previously. But during his day Nikolai was as powerful a man as there was on earth.

  • Little Children, Love One Another Series

    Contributed by W Pat Cunningham on Dec 23, 2014

    St John’s Day Mass 2014 (December 27) Thirteen Days of Christmas Tradition tells us that of the three first witnesses to the empty tomb, St. John lived the longest. That is not surprising, since Tradition also holds that he was the youngest, perhaps a teenager during Jesus’s more

  • Easter Is Suppose To Hurt

    Contributed by Amiri Hooker on Mar 29, 2013

    This is a Easter sermon dealing with the pain of Good Friday its connection with the pain of Easter and the Joy of the Resurrected Christ.

    Easter moves us from Friday to Sunday, from death to new life. Friday, in Christian reckoning, is a null-point wherein the power of God is defeated by the empire of force. But the church has found in that Friday shut-down the transformative work of God. It is a Friday truth that suffering love more
