Whispers at Dawn (Easter Sunday 2022)

Speakers:Rev. Dr. Carol Cavin-Dillon
Topics:Easter, Sunday service

The crowd and celebration in the sanctuary for this Easter service are in stark contrast to the first Easter morning, when there were few who quietly went to the tomb, and for whom the mysteries of that morning were communicated in whispers.  In Luke’s account of that morning, the women who come to the tomb were witnesses at the cross as the body of Jesus was taken down – from their perspective it’s over.  Most of us know that feeling of an inability to do anything about some loss.  The women hear the news from two men in dazzling clothes.  Those the women tell simply don’t believe them.  But in their time of despair God was at work in the darkness giving victory of life over death.  In those moments when we are hopeless, God is at work.  When we feel hopeless, we must remember that God is at work.  Because God has raised Jesus, we must do what we can do – tell the story, live the life.   (NOTE: The video begins with the Sermon, but once it starts you can scroll back to the beginning of the service if you want.  The entire service is videoed.)
