Sermons for Lent, Good Friday and Easter Cycle A
Lenten Sermons: Lent begins with the symbol of ashes, then challenges us to rise above the ashes of our own destruction. Lent challenges us to deep decision?making arising out of the kind of inner?conflict Jesus experienced in His forty days of trial in the wilderness.
Good Friday Sermons: On Good Friday, Jesus is given to us stripped of all attachments except one: His devotion to the Father?s will and service. This is our assurance that though we have nothing, in possessing Jesus we have everything. God, in His own time, will bring the New Kingdom to fulfillment and the evils of sin and suffering will be no more.
Easter Sermons: For the New Testament Christians, Jesus? Resurrection was much more than a miracle. Their Lord, who had been crucified and placed in a tomb, confronted them as Living Lord. But, for the New Testament Community, the important thing was that through the miracle they discovered who God is. They came to know God as a God of Resurrection Power ? a God who transforms darkness into light, sorrow into joy, death into New Life.
