Love wins

Dearly Beloved,
Grace and Peace to you.
Christ is risen!

God has come among us in gentleness.
We have responded by assaulting
the Lamb of God with all our fear and violence—
and it has failed: God’s gentleness has prevailed.
Our violence has died, but forgiveness endures.

Christ is risen!

The angry mob has become dust,
and even the mighty Empire has vanished,
but the Loving One lives on.

Christ is risen!

Love is stronger than evil.
Gentleness is mightier than coercion.
Forgiveness is greater than fear.

Christ is risen!

The power of death is an illusion;
the machines of oppression are a sham,
but the grace of God is infinite,
and raises you to life that is eternal.

Christ is risen!

Love deeply, therefore,
and seek justice with courage;
bless and forgive extravagantly,
and be gentle without fear,
for Christ, the Gentle One, is risen.
Christ is risen indeed!

Deep Blessings,
Pastor Steve
