On Easter morning, hundreds of millions of Christians celebrate the resurrection of Jesus with supreme confidence in his saving power. Whether born-again or mainline, they believe in salvation through the risen Christ. But saved from what or to what? Is “saving” an adjective describing Jesus, or a verb implying we have to save him? I have a sneaking suspicion my answer will confirm what you think is the truth.
SPECIAL NOTE: For some respectful fun during this Easter service, men, women and children are asked to wear any kind of Easter hat, be it beautiful or amusing and during the service we’ll have an Easter Parade around the sanctuary.
This is a “BRING A FRIEND” Sunday service. Easter is one of the times when many un-churched people, or people dissatisfied with their current or former religions consider attending a different religious community’s service. So this would be a great day to bring someone along with you because we’ll honor and celebrate Easter from the unique Unitarian Universalist perspective. You could be the person who makes a significant positive difference in another’s life. EVANGELIZE . . . share the good news of Unitarian Universalism! If you bring a guest and let Rev. Ziegler know this, you’ll receive a chocolate treat from her.
As Spring peeks her tentative face forward, let’s celebrate by gathering for our traditional Easter brunch right after Rev. Jackie’s service today. We try to keep this a simple finger food brunch and won’t be setting up tables, so please bring easy to eat items like holiday breads, muffins, meat roll ups, fruit. Stalwart souls can bring kites to fly if they wish and little ones of egg hunting age should bring 6 Decorated Easter eggs which the Easter bunny will hide for kids to hunt after the service.( outside, weather permitting).
