The Resurrection Reorders Life – April 21, 2019

Matthew 28:1-15

Melissa tells us there were two very different realities that Sunday morning, three days after Jesus had been crucified. The contrast between the Jewish women and the Roman soldiers at the grave couldn’t have been greater.

The Easter story is a story of grace. It’s a reordering of life. We’re encouraged to let ourselves be loved by God and to love God in return.

Rachel re-telling the story of Tabitha at RMC on April 29, 2018

Tabitha’s Story – April 29, 2018

This Sunday Rachel told the story of Tabitha, in  Acts 9:36-43, but from the perspective of one of Tabitha’s widowed friends in Joppa.  Tabitha shows how our whole life can be defined by little resurrections, little renewals of life, little affirmations that death, sin, division and brokenness do not have the last word.  Her story serves as an invitation for all of us to practice resurrection; inviting in the outcast, lifting up the poor and lowly, and doing all this through the power of Yeshua, whom we now call Jesus.

Melissa Florer-Bixler preaching at Raleigh Mennonite Feb. 18, 2018

“Remember that you are dust, and to dust you shall return.” – Feb. 18, 2018

John 11:1-44 – The Death of Lazarus

Ash Wednesday, the start of Lent, a time for prayer as we anticipate with sorrow Jesus’ death. This year Ash Wednesday was marked by the death of 17 students and teachers at the High School in Parkland, Fl. The Ash Wednesday cross contains ashes representing death. Melissa reminds us that the same oil is used to mark us as Christians when we are baptized. The scripture recounts Lazarus’ death and resurrection. A resurrection that allows us to believe in a new world where we are safe in God’s light. A world where we no longer fear death.
