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.

The Logic of the Cross - Good Friday - 3 April 2015

The crucifix of the Church of Saint Mary of the Angels, Singapore.

The Very Rev Daniel Richards talks of the change of thought of the crucifixion of Jesus by his disciples and explains the logic of the cross.

Hebrews 4:14-16; 5:7-9
John 18:1-19:42 
Psalm 22

The Collect

Almighty God, we pray you graciously to behold this your family, for whom our Lord Jesus Christ was willing to be betrayed, and given into the hands of sinners, and to suffer death upon the cross; who now lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

Note: Richards chants the Passion story according to the Gospel of John prior to the message.

Given at the 700 am worship, Grace Episcopal Church, 341 Washington, Traverse City, Michigan, USA
