4/1 Preacher’s Post: The Game Changer: The Road to Emmaus

Posted by & filed under News, Notes + Opportunities, Preacher's Post, Thoughts and Prayers from Pastor Rich.

Death is the doorway to Resurrection. Something has to die in order for new life to spring forth. So many of Jesus’ metaphors signaled that he was and is the game changer. No more business as usual. Yet, I’m pretty sure many of us are coming to this Easter celebration like we have so many in the past,… Read more »
