During this Easter season we gather ‘huddled’ in some ways like the disciples, full of wonder about the future and how the days will unfold. While we know the the story of the risen Christ and proclaim it in word and deed, we are also look to a future that is unknown and fearful. The resurrection is amazing but it led the disciples into all kinds of new places with a story to tell. We too are telling a story, one that we know well but one that has a need for a different way to tell it.
Every week we are sending out our Sunday ‘bulletin’ via the post office and email. We are using Facebook, Zoom and other platforms to communicate a story that is two centuries old. We are using new ways to speak of God’s amazing grace made fully know in the person of Jesus. I wonder what Luther thought as his words were being copied over and over by a technology, the printing press, that had just come into being.
May you hear the story of resurrection and new life from both old and new forms of communication. May you tell that same story in all the ways you can. May that same resurrection story renew your life and break the chains that bind you to sin and death. Alleluia, Christ is Risen. He is Risen Indeed, Alleluia!
