May 23: The Gospel of Resurrection, Ascension & Return
May 24, 2021
The Rev. Alex Shuttleworth

Many of us take our eschatology from Disney: both overstating and understating the significance of death at the same time. We pretend it is “nothing at all” and make up ideas that gloss over our grief, but deep down we know that death is real and so we often feel despair, even if we hide it. But resurrection is real. So those who receive the gospel, can grieve with hope.

Readings from this service:
1 Thessalonians 4: 3-18
Psalm 49: 10-16
John 14: 15-26
