Sermons on “Easter”

The beginning of the first day of the first year . . .

The tomb is open to let us in to our Risen Lord’s new life. The tomb is open, and Jesus calls to us. Jesus calls to you: Come, you who are weary, you who are broken-hearted, you whose bodies are failing and whose spirits are fainting. Come, look into the tomb with Mary. See how it is empty? Our Lord Jesus has risen from the dead, and he means to bring you, too, into the glorious light of his new life.

The Last Word

On Easter we celebrate that God’s love has triumphed over Jesus’ cross, but more importantly, we celebrate that God’s love will triumph over all the crosses we bear in this life.
