April 9 – Easter Sunday – Who are you looking for?
When Mary finds the tomb empty, she stands weeping at the vacant grave. Jesus, mysteriously appearing as the gardener, asks her: “Why are you weeping? Who are you looking for?” In the haze of grief, Mary can only see what is right before her—or in this case, what is not before her. It is only when Jesus calls her by name that the veil is lifted and she beholds the resurrected Christ. On this Easter morning, who—or what—are you looking for? Why have you come to the tomb? What kind of Jesus are you looking for? We are full of questions: Who do we see in the living Christ? What veils need to be lifted so we can recognize God’s resurrection in all the places it occurs? As we journey into Eastertide, will we continue to seek the miracle of God’s newness? In what ways will you continue to look for Jesus in the world? Acts 10:34-43 and John 20:1-18

Generosity rises from the conviction that God has provided, and that we can participate in God’s work with our offerings. Give today.
Also, we will continue the fun tradition after worship of sharing & gathering Easter eggs in Peace Garden. Since we’re a little short on grass this spring, we’ll adapt to an Alleluia Egg game with the help of the Four12 youth. Come and see!
