Christ Church Sermons from April 2019
In this Easter season, let us find laughter and joy in God’s sense of humor, Jesus’s clever parables, and an assortment of religious jokes! Enjoy.
On this Easter Sunday, God trusts us to be perplexed and amazed at the empty tomb. God trusts us to ask our questions and be open to answers coming in time. Luke 24:1-12
On this Good Friday, we must look at the cross to see the man and God who died. In doing so, we recognize all who suffer and die and we begin to know God’s love. John 18:1-19:42.
On this Maundy Thursday, we engage in “remembrance,” and bring the past to the present and into the future. We remember Jesus’s commandment to eat the bread and drink the wine in “remembrance of” him and, in doing so, we “re-member” ourselves as individuals and the Body of Christ. 1 Corinthians 11:23-26.
Jesus shows us that Palm Sunday is about celebrating our King and crying for our human condition. God weeps for us; for what do you weep? Luke 19:28-44.
The Rev. Canon Paula Clark, the Canon to the Ordinary and Canon for Clergy Development, Multicultural Ministries and Justice, from the Episcopal Diocese of Washington, preached on the time of transition as Christ Church begins the search for the 29th Rector.
