Easter continues at Grace UMC Dallas with a sermon on love–the love of God that makes possible human love, and the ache, joy, and responsibility of loving one another. Associate Pastor Eric Markinson preaches on 1 John 4:7-21, the one place in scripture that states what all believers know–that God is love.
In this sermon, Pastor Judith Reedy invites Grace Church Dallas to build the Communion of God, through our actions and our love–even in the face of conflict and discouragement. She offers a good word on Acts 4:5-12, remembering Earth Day and Native American Ministries Sunday.
For the Third Sunday of Easter, Reverend Judith Reedy preaches the word from 1 John 3:1-7–that God loves all creation as children of God, and still calls us to act as adults–choosing love and being love for one another, even in difference, even when love is hard to muster. With help from Mister Rogers and friends.
Reverend Judith Reedy continues Grace’s celebration of Easter with a sermon on John 20:19-31–Jesus’ resurrection appearances, Thomas’s doubts, and God’s graciousness in pursuing creation, pursuing US–inviting us to go into the world and in turn be gracious to one another. Includes the Children’s Message, by request, and the Chancel Choir’s selection, “This Do in Remembrance of Me.”
Reverend Judith Reedy’s Easter message embraces the paradoxes of human frailty and marvelous witness, the music of failure, and–most of all–the awful death and glorious resurrection of Jesus Christ. God’s love is our triumph; Christ’s resurrection is our resurrection. (Mark 16:1-8)
