Claire Unruh brought the message today using the texts from John 4:1-29 and Luke 10:25-37. Jesus’ counter-culture teachings and actions showed that he reached out to and cared for the oppressed and those who were discriminated against. He taught us to do the same.
After we heard the Readers’ Theater present John 20:1-18, Hans spoke to us of how the early Christians were changed by having witnessed the evidence of Jesus’ Resurrection. Also he told the story of how a communist official was not able to convince a group of Russian Orthodox Christians that the Resurrection of Jesus was not true.
