Lent is a time when we prepare ourselves for Easter, for the tremendous revelation of God pouring out God’s own self for all the world.
Such revelation is too much to take in sometimes! Instead, we will try to experience it through the imagined words and stories of the people who surrounded Jesus in his last week: a friend who anoints him, two disciples (Peter and Judas), a soldier who witnesses his execution, and his mother, Mary. As each sees an element—oil, water, wine, blood, tears—poured out, we all wait with hope for love and light and life to be poured out on Easter. Then, we will bear witness with seekers at the tomb of Jesus, including Mary Magdalene.
Here are the sermons in this worship series:
