Scripture Readings for March 31, 2024

Christ is risen! Jesus is alive, and God has swallowed up death forever. With Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James, and Salome, we may feel astonished and confused, unsure of what to make of the empty tomb. But this is why we gather: to proclaim, witness, praise, and affirm the liberating reality of Christ’s death and resurrection. In word and feast, we celebrate God’s unending love, and depart to share this good news with all the world. Alleluia!

Acts 10:34-43; Psalm 118:1-2, 14-24; 1 Corinthians 15:1-11; Mark 16:1-8

From the Pastor's Desk

Grace and peace to you!

How are you this holiest of weeks? I don’t know about you, but of for me it’s easy to get caught up in the whirl of day to day life on any regular week, and on a week like this one that is especially true, with plenty of extra events and details to consider.

But deep down under the surface of all that could easily fill this week, there is a yearning within my soul. It is the same yearning that aches deep within as I gather in a sanctuary and stand face to face with the death of someone I love. On the surface my mind is furiously whirring, trying to capture all of the memories of my loved one and hold them safe in my heart, as they are the only thing I have left to hold. But at the same time, deep within my soul, I yearn to hear the promise, to be reminded once again of how God shows up in the story.

Have you ever heard the old hymn, “I love to tell the story?” The words of that hymn come to mind today to give voice to that deepest of yearnings in my soul.

“I love to tell the story, for those who know it best

seem hungering and thirsting to hear it like the rest.

My prayer for myself and for all of us is that someway, somehow in the course of this week, whether in the midst of the sanctuary, or a quiet moment of prayer, or driving down the road, deep down inside we may have ears to hear the story of our God who created each unique person, and loved this world enough to come to this earth and walk amongst us – to experience our pain and suffering, and to experience the worst that our world had to offer – death on a cross so that nothing could separate us from God’s love.

God’s peace,

Pastor Amanda
