Resurrection

When we think about the Biblical testimonies to the continued life and ministry of Jesus, we believe in resurrection.

When we think about the work that The Simple Way does to alleviate poverty, we believe in resurrection.

When we think about the home rebuilding that Back Bay Mission does in Mississippi, we believe in resurrection.

When think about the political advocacy that Call to Renewal does on behalf of the oppressed, we believe in resurrection.

When we think about the progressive, emerging ministries of the United Church of Christ, we believe in resurrection.

When we think about a nation that was build, in part, through slavery, but then years later elected an African American as president, we believe in resurrection.

When we think about the restorative retreat ministries hosted by Holden Village, we believe in resurrection.

When we think about the beautiful wildflowers that come back after a CRP burn, we believe in resurrection.

When we think about the inclusive and justice-fulled songs and liturgies of Christopher Grundy, we believe in resurrection.

When we think about the radically welcoming meal ministry of Jesus that continues today through the Eucharist, we believe in resurrection.

Christ the Lord is risen today - and everyday. Praise be to God!
