How the resurrection of Jesus keeps happening
Sunday, 10 a.m. at LSUS
We are a family. It’s one of our core values.
And while we’re a diverse and (to put it kindly) wacky bunch, there IS a family resemblance – resurrection.
What we all have in common is that we’re experiencing resurrection in our lives. It happens bit by bit, day by day, and it looks different in each of our lives, but it’s the thing we all share. The God who raised Jesus is raising us to new life too.
Easter keeps on having sequels. The resurrection of Jesus keeps happening, in ways large and small, for folks all around the world.
And this shared experience makes us family. Jesus’ death and resurrection connect us not only to God but to each other. We are resurrection people.
So let’s talk about what it means to live as resurrection people. How does the Spirit bring about new life in us? How do we welcome this new life? What kind of community today best puts resurrection on display?
We’ll look at post-resurrection texts in the Bible, learning what we can from the emergence of the first community of resurrection people. We’ll also borrow lessons from church history – how others who’ve walked the way of Jesus before us have experienced resurrection.
Easter is more than a day, more than a season on the church calendar, it’s a new reality for all who know Jesus. The God who raised Jesus never stopped, and he never will. That’s just how it is in this family.
