“Closer and Closer” – 2020 Easter Sermon Series

SUNDAY Series Overview:

Main Idea: The resurrection means deeper relationships with God and one another.

Series Summary:

At Easter we celebrate Jesus’ resurrection from the dead; but this is no ghostly apparition.  Jesus returns in the flesh to be close once again with his friends and to bring them closer together with one another.  There is tenderness and physicality highlighted in the resurrection narratives, people coming together to hear and respond to this amazing news.  Before Jesus’ followers become the heroic saints of the church, they are simply a group of friends hearing and telling one another a story for which they can barely find words.  Like bedtime stories and old family lore, we share our stories in relationships close and safe so that we will be equipped to boldly share the story of Jesus in the world.
