A Sermon for the Second Sunday of Easter
A Sermon for Easter Day
Like the people gathered around a campfire, we heard this story tonight around this flame. But unlike the campfire of our childhood, they are not ghost stories, although the story about Ezekiel and the dry bones might have felt a bit like one. But rather, these are sacred stories, our sacred story, stories about liberation and love and life.
The epiphanies continue this week. But what is striking about the epiphany we have in the beginning of today’s Gospel is that it is not a dramatic moment. It’s a rather subtle and private moment. Jesus enters into the house of Simon Peter and Andrew where Simon Peter’s mother in law is sick with a fever.
