Celebrating the Life of Jesus

Happy Resurrection Sunday! In this season we recognize that Jesus did indeed exist, and that he came to earth as the Son of God with the express purpose of bridging the divide between God and humanity.

Holy Week and Work: Reconciliation in the Workplace

April 19, 2019By Mark D. Roberts

There is another dimension of the cross that we sometimes overlook on Good Friday. We see this dimension clearly in Ephesians 2:14-16, where the death of Christ on the cross brings reconciliation not only between people and God but also between alienated people groups.

Holy Week and Work: Work Restored

April 17, 2019By Mark D. Roberts

Because of the cross, the day will come when creation is restored and renewed. In that day, we will experience work as God intended it to be. That is part of our future hope in Christ.
