Legendary Love

The Very Rev. Peet Dickinson | 1 John 3:11-24

A restaurant is only as good as the dish it’s known for. Likewise, the measure of the Christian church is what is supposed to be our defining mark: love. Yet love is so often lacking in our hearts and our communities; what do we make of this? Join Peet Dickinson as he looks at the death-conquering love of Jesus, and sees it reflected in our lives by the power of God.

Identity and Responsibility

The Rev. Patrick Schlabs | 1 John 2:28-3:10

Our families give us many of the traits that affect how we are, yet these do not define us. Our spiritual family, however, defines us to our core. As John writes, if we are children of God, we shall be like him. This identity entails a responsibility to act accordingly, but how is the transition made from title to lifestyle? Join Patrick Schlabs as he asks this question and encounters the God who makes us his own.

The Truer Story

The Very Rev. Peet Dickinson | Luke 24:36-49, 1 John 1:1-2:2

Many of us feel like we’re characters in the wrong movie; life feels like it doesn’t align with our deepest instincts. We’re much like the disciples on Easter morning, grieving and scared, before Jesus appears. John, the beloved disciple, writes about the Easter shift from this wrong story to the truer story of the resurrection. Join Peet Dickinson as he follows the scriptural story from darkness to light, from death to life.

The Disillusioned Resurrection

Mr. Jacob Graudin | John 20:19-31

The joy of Easter is still fresh, yet disillusionment and doubt quickly follow. How do we deal with the realization that the world is not the way that it should be, even when we are reborn in Christ, even (and especially) in the midst of his Church? Join Jacob Graudin as he walks with Thomas and the other disciples through their doubt, and finds the resurrected Jesus meeting them with power and love.

Easter in the Here and Now

The Right Reverend Mark J. Lawrence | John 20:1-18

All around us the world is beset with decay and death, yet the fragrance of Easter flows from the empty tomb. Yet that transforming day can seem so far removed. What does it mean for Easter morning to be real in our present moments? Join Bishop Mark Lawrence as he unfolds the resurrection of Jesus in all its glory.
