Passage: John 21:1-19
Duration: 12 mins 22 secs
After Jesus' Resurrection his Disciples returned to Capernaum by the Sea of Galilee. Led by Peter they went fishing in the familiar waters. They caught nothing. In the morning Jesus aided them from shore. They catch an incredible number of fish and recognize that it is Jesus on shore. Jesus feeds them and Peter is restored. Jesus then tells Peter to "follow me". Life with Jesus fills our nets in ways we can never anticipate. Restoration of our relationship with God leads to amazing adventures in ministry. In this Sunday's Gospel we find the pattern of our weekly worship: Gathering together in a "Nave", getting instruction from Jesus, being fed and restored by Jesus, and finally being called to follow in ministry.

Passage: John 20:19-31
Duration: 18 mins
The contrast between Thomas’ doubt in our Gospel this week, and the courage of the disciple’s preaching in Acts illustrates the difference the resurrection makes. Thomas (and all the disciples) lived, listened, watch and traveled with Jesus for three years, but until they saw proof that he had risen from the dead, they were frightened, discouraged and ready to walk away. After they saw Jesus for themselves and were empowered by the Holy Spirit, they were unstoppable in spreading the Gospel. So bring your questions, wrestle with your faith, but do it in the company of Christians, in the presence of the Holy Spirit, in the context of the Word.

Passage: & John 20:1-18
Duration: 15 mins 29 secs
Death is known as the great equalizer. It is that which all men must find their end. It is also when we will ultimately realize just how powerless we really are. Death is the great opponent that none of us will defeat on our own. All men live and die; only one man died and lives, and his name is Jesus. It is by and through his victory that the power of death no longer constrains us. The Resurrection is not a moment tied to history. Rather, Jesus' Resurrection opens to us a new history that screams victory amidst our failures, forgiveness over our sins, and rightly crowns Jesus with his eternal crown. Come celebrate with us this Sunday as we pop champagne and sing praises to our Savior. Alleluia! -Kyle

Passage: Luke 19:28-40
Duration: 14 mins 7 secs
Come join us this Sunday for blessing palms, processing and celebrating Palm Sunday. It is the beginning of Holy Week and this year we are saving the Passion for Good Friday and concentrating on the many meanings of Jesus’ entrance into Jerusalem: King, Messiah, Prince of Peace, Victim, Event Planner… Soon enough, the crowds, like our own hearts, will turn on Him, but this morning, they are cheering for the glory of God and all of creation, even the stones are prepared to join in the chorus.

Passage: John 12:1-8
Duration: 14 mins 32 secs
We have a God that makes a path in the sea, a way in the wilderness and a river in the desert. There are times when it feels like there is no way forward and fearful things surround every part of our life, or like we are heading on a path that just leads to our destruction, but God is at work shaping and sanctifying us. And like Paul, we are called to forget what lies behind and strain forward into the path God lays before us. With unusual understanding of what lays ahead of Jesus in Jerusalem, Mary pours out her gratitude for the life of her brother in the prophetic act of anointing Jesus’ feet with costly perfume.

Luke 15 is sometimes called the mini Gospel. It contains three amazing parables about lost and found. The parable of the prodigal Son is the most famous, but all three speak of the joy in Heaven over the return of one who is lost. God desires not the death of a sinner but that they repent and return to the Lord. Check Ezekiel 18:23 for the wording of this famous verse. Want to make Angels party? Repent and return to the Lord. Angels will dance with joy! -Ed

Passage: Luke 13:1-9
Duration: 20 mins 17 secs
It is no secret that I am easily distracted...look a squirrel! It is part of my personality type. But is also true that most people focus on that which is immediately before them even when something vastly more pressing requires attention. We can't see the forest for the trees. In this weeks Gospel, Jesus attempts to refocus people's attention from recent tragedies to their need of repentance. "Unless you repent, you will all perish". Repentance is a great gift and spectacular good news. We can repent. Our lives now can change for the good. We can be freed from destructive habits and enjoy peace in this life and look forward to eternal life. -Ed
