Don’t you have a saying, ‘It’s still four months until harvest’? I tell you, open your eyes and look at the fields! They are ripe for harvest. John 4:35 NIV
Christ has ascended, and until He returns...
The rest of the year following Epiphany and Pentecost is known as Ordinary Time. Rather than meaning "common" or "mundane," this term comes from the word "ordinal," which simply means counted time (First Sunday after Trinity, etc.), which is probably a better way to think of this time of the year.
The celebration of the resurrection.
Scripture - John 20:1-18
Early on the first day of the week, while it was still dark, Mary Magdalene went to the tomb and saw that the stone had been removed from the entrance. So she came running to Simon Peter and the other disciple, the one Jesus loved, and said, “They have taken the Lord out of the tomb, and we don’t know where they have put him!”
Eastertide - a Single Joyful Feast
No matter which translation we read, we celebrate God's love for us at Easter.
- Greater love than this hath no man, when any man bestoweth his life for his friends. — 1599 Geneva Bible
- This is the very best way to love. Put your life on the line for your friends. — The Message
- Greater love has no one than this, that someone lay down his life for his friends. — English Standard Version Anglicised
- And here is how to measure it—the greatest love is shown when a person lays down his life for his friends; — Living Bible
Eastertide is the period of fifty days from Easter Sunday to Pentecost Sunday.
It is celebrated as a single joyful feast, indeed as the "great Lord's Day". Each Sunday of the season is treated as a Sunday of Easter, and, after the Sunday of the Resurrection, they are named Second Sunday of Easter, Third Sunday of Easter, etc. up to the Seventh Sunday of Easter, while the whole fifty-day period concludes with Pentecost Sunday.
The glory of the light of God with renewal of baptismal vows.
I am the man who has seen affliction
by the rod of the Lord’s wrath.
He has driven me away and made me walk
in darkness rather than light;
indeed, he has turned his hand against me
again and again, all day long.
The stations of the cross and the crucifixion.
Joseph took the body, wrapped it in a clean linen cloth, and placed it in his own new tomb that he had cut out of the rock. He rolled a big stone in front of the entrance to the tomb and went away.
Bishop Greg will join us for a Celebration of the last supper.
A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another.
These feet had trod through dust and animal muck. Jesus washed them all, including the feet of his betrayer.
