Getting Ready for Sunday | 05/05/2019
Alleluia! Christ is risen!
It's the season of Easter and we will gather together again on Sunday, May 5th at 4pm for the Holy Eucharist.
Our Eastertide sermons focus on discipleship: Carrying the Cross in the Light of the Resurrection. You can hear the first sermon in the series at this link.
The following paragraph from Dallas Willard is a classic definition of discipleship, an essential starting point for what it means carry our crosses and follow the risen Jesus.
"We need to clear in our heads about what discipleship is. My definition: A disciple is a person who has decided that the most important thing in their life is to learn how to do what Jesus said to do. A disciple is not a person who has things under control, or knows a lot of things. Disciples simply are people who are constantly revising their affairs to carry through on their decision to follow Jesus."
