  • Conformity is not the expectation we have for anyone in this church – rather, we all have the opportunity to confirm our faith again in a loving and diverse God. Amazingly, each one of us is created in God’s image – and each one of us is absolutely unique, reflecting God’s diverse being and creation. Each one of us a full member of this community of faith, sharing our unique gifts for the betterment of all of us and to further God’s work in the world. As the body of Christ, what new traditions will we create together?

  • The disciples had the gift of community to come to belief - as do we. When we come together as a community of faith to testify to the evidence of the risen Christ in our midst, we are encouraged all the more to believe in the reconciling power of God at work in the world. Where are the places we are most aware of the resurrected Christ in our midst?

  • In the resurrection, life triumphs over death, redemption triumphs over brokenness. Jesus’ life, ministry, death and resurrection is the greatest gift from God to the world to help us understand that God’s justice is oriented towards healing, towards mercy for the purpose of restoring right relationship, restoring shalom – restoring peace between us and God and us with one another. Through Jesus we understand that God’s love is steadfast and endures forever and not even the tomb of sin and death can separate us from the love of God.

  • Western Presbyterian Church welcomes the Rev. Laura Cunningham to the pulpit. Rev. Cunningham preached this sermon as a candidating sermon - meaning, on this day, the congregation also voted to call Rev. Cunningham as their new lead pastor. Her sermon speaks to the ways that we sin, or separate ourselves from God. But, the prayer of Psalm 51 reveals the joy that comes from being filled with the forgiveness of God.
