Sermon Introduction –
The story of Easter is a promise: there is nothing stronger than God’s love for you. God’s grace is even bigger than death! This Sunday, let’s celebrate the miracle of the resurrection.
Introduction to this week’s readings
This is the day the Lord has made! Christ is risen, and through him all creation is made new! Indeed, “God shows no partiality” (Acts 10:34): Christ’s resurrection truly brings life to everyone. We sing hymns of praise, gather around sacred words, and proclaim God’s faithfulness, power, and love in the feast of holy communion. With the women at the tomb, we are astonished, elated, and grateful. We depart with joy to proclaim the good news of God’s endless love.
