Grace: It's Our Way of Life

As Episcopal Christians we
Worship at home daily and together weekly;
Study the Scriptures, our tradition, and what it means to be a disciple today;
Serve our families, our parish, and our world in the name of Christ.

Everything we do is done with an ethic of Welcome
because we are only here by Grace.

Sermon, Easter II, Year B, 15 April 2012 - A Pedagogy of Resurrection - Forgiveness

Benvenuto di Giovanni
The Resurrection, probably 1491
Samuel H. Kress Collection

Sermon in which we discover that we don't know how to live in the New Creation of the Resurrection, and what we need is a pedagogy of the Resurrection. Forgiveness is the first lesson in the Gospel of John for the disciples, and with it go mission, identity, and what belief means.

Acts 4:32-35
Psalm 133
1 John 1:1-2:2
John 20:19-31

At the Peace, the Very Rev. Daniel P. Richards reminds us that the liturgy gives us a chance to forgive and be forgiven in the Peace where we model what a moment of true faith and letting go can lead us, into an embodiment of Christ.
