Luke 24:13-25

3rd Sunday of Easter - Year A

God Reached Out

The Rev. Marek Zabriskie (TEC)

Easter faith is about reaching out. No small acts of service will solve the unspeakable problems that besiege our world. But that’s not how Christians view it.

Beyond Bunnies and Jelly Beans

The Rev. Pam Driesell (PCUSA)

In her Easter message based on John 20, the Rev. Pam Driesell says, "Easter is not a promise that your business or family or the church or the world will be 'like it used to be,' or even that your pulse will go on beating forever. It is a promise that the power that gave you a pulse will never, ever abandon you."
