          Easter’s hope is not only of life resurrected after Christ’s death or  the death of loved ones or even ourselves in the hereafter; I believe it is also the profound promise of life - our lives – in the here and now, resurrected from fear filled dead ends and transformed through love forevermore....

          “Who will roll away the stone?!” they ask; half asleep, tired, filled with grief, fear and doubt, hurt, anger, and disappointment. “Who will roll away the stone?!” Last week’s triumphal entry is little more than a memory.

          Eleven years ago Palm Sunday fell on April 1st – April Fools’day. We were in the early stages of forming a new church and spent each Sunday visiting different worshipping communities.

          How much might you bid for a $20 bill?  $1? $5? $10 maybe?  Well, several years ago a business school professor says that she began her class by asking this very  question.

         No one knows when or where or even how she came by it. Only that at some time or another, Mother Theresa found this simple this poem about loving one another, which begins…  “People are illogical, unreasonable, and self-centered - Love them anyway.” She enlarged it, nailed it to the wall in the lobby and rais...

          From the second letter of Corinthians, hear this powerful affirmation: no matter how filled with doubt, uncertainty, or fear you may be or feel; no matter how misunderstood or persecuted you may feel; no matter how afflicted in mind, body or spirit you may be; You have everything you need to live joyfully, p...
