Sunday, April 19. 3rd Sunday of Easter. Easter is not just one Sunday, but a whole season of the life of the church. Look for signs and symbols of resurrection as you go through the coming weeks to remind you to continue in the proclamation of resurrection.
Words from The Word: Then [Jesus] opened their minds to understand the scriptures, and he said to them, “Thus it is written, that the Messiah is to suffer and to rise from the dead on the third day, and that repentance and forgiveness of sins is to be proclaimed in his name to all nations, beginning from Jerusalem. You are witnesses of these things.”
-Luke 24:45-48 (NRSV)
