And then, of course, one week from today, April 21, is Easter Sunday. And carrying on our now eight year tradition, we’ll be serving Easter pie in celebration of the resurrection. So what we need from you is to bring a pie. A homemade pie, a store bought pie, it’s your call.

THIS COMING SUNDAY

THE SECOND ACT OF HEALING
Mark 8:22-25
Pastor Mark Bergin

When Jesus began his ministry, he went about healing people of their bodily afflictions and emotional burdens. Yet as his ministry neared its end, as he set his face toward Jerusalem, he began to offer a very different sort of healing: “If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross and follow me. For whoever would save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake and the gospel's will save it.” With these words, Jesus made it clear to his followers that in all of his preceding miracles he was providing healing for the cross. He healed people so that they might follow him to Calvary. And now, in the second act of his ministry, he meant to heal people through Calvary. First, he healed for the cross. Now, he would heal by the cross. First, he made people whole. Now, he invited them to be wholly poured out. The crowds on Palm Sunday celebrated Christ’s first act of healing, but they balked as the second act became clear. Who will we follow? The crowd or the Christ?
