Resurrection 2.0

Resurrection 2.0

April 16, 2017
Rev. Justin Schroeder

In our culture, “Version 2.0” is often thought of as the better, greater, much improved version. All of the bugs and defects of version 1.0 have been worked out. So what does “Resurrection 2.0” mean, then? Is it an update on “Resurrection 1.0,” with hard facts, scientific data, and historical accuracy? Or does resurrection, no matter the version, point to something timeless, a story and an experience that has to do with suffering, transformation, and possibilities we can scarcely imagine? Join us this Sunday, as we explore the deeper meanings of the Easter season and this timeless story.

Join us for a multigenerational worship service this Sunday, April 16, at 9:30 or 11:15 a.m. – ages 4 and up attend the entire service. Optional childcare is available for ages 6 months to 3 years.

April Worship Theme: Transformation
Karen Armstrong writes: “Religion is not about accepting twenty impossible propositions before breakfast, but about doing things that change you. It is a moral aesthetic, an ethical alchemy. If you behave in a certain way, you will be transformed.” When we dare to move beyond the known patterns and perceptions of our lives, letting the alchemy of love, listening and justice do its work, then we will be more than changed. The base metals of our lives will be transformed into something precious and flourishing. This is the purpose of religion, and the meaning of a religious life: to be transformed.
