March 31, 2013 Resurrection of the Lord

This week’s readings

He is Risen!

Al….nope, not yet.

Today we enter into the Triduum, that holy time of recalling the events leading up to Jesus’ death and resurrection. Many of us are struggling to find one more creative way to talk about resurrection.

One year, with a small congregation, following the Easter gospel (I don’t recall which one), I asked the congregation to tell the story back to me. What they repeated back was a compilation of the four gospel stories. We then spoke about the emphasis of each gospel.

A few of my preacher friends are focussing on one line of the readings. I think this could give fodder for sermons for the rest of my days. Here are some lines that stand out for me.

  • God shows no partiality, but in every nation anyone who fears him and does what is right is acceptable to him
  • Be glad and rejoice forever in what I am creating
  •  “His mercy endures for ever.”
  • “…we do not know…”

Is there a resurrection message your community is longing to hear on Sunday?

About Dawn Leger

I am a priest in the Diocese of Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island, having served in Stouffville, Ontario. I think preaching is a profound and great privilege granted to us by God and our Church. I love the reading, the writing, the proclaiming, the dissecting and the dialogue. I also love to cook, sing, read and laugh, in no particular order.
