Easter continues this week, and we continue reflecting on what Jesus told his disciples before his passion, death, and resurrection and how it speaks to us about the life of faith that we are called to embrace today. What does it mean to receive the peace of Christ, to trust the Holy Spirit to remind us of Jesus’ teaching, and to keep Jesus’ words? Join us this Sunday, May 26, to find out.
Worship begins at 10:00 a.m.
There is a place for you at St. Paul’s!
Sunday’s Scripture Readings:
Acts 16:9-15; Psalm 67; Revelation 21:10, 22-22:5; John 14:23-29
Easter (April 21, 2019 – June 9, 2019)
Easter is the most joyous time of the church’s year, a day and season of celebrating Christ’s victory over sin, death, and hell through his being raised from death to life. During the “Great Fifty Days”, Christians throughout the world put aside fasting in favor of feasting, and the worship of the church takes on a triumphant tone that reflects the greatness of God’s power, majesty, and might. Easter concludes with the celebration of the Day of Pentecost, on which the church recalls the sending of the Holy Spirit upon early believers that seals the promise of Christ’s continued presence with the community of the faithful. Easter is marked by the celebratory colors of gold and white.
