The wilderness is the birthplace of joy.
Easter Sunday – April 12
Pastor Steve Clark preaching
For Sunday, READ John 20:1-18 and REFLECT: This is probably a very familiar story to many of us. Are there any details you’ve not noticed before? Do they seem important and if so, why? Why do you think John twice mentions details about what the disciples find in the tomb (“the linen wrappings lying there” in the tomb, and ” the cloth that had been on Jesus’ head, not lying with the linen wrappings but rolled up in a place by itself”; vv5-6)? How do you think it is that Mary doesn’t recognize Jesus at first, even though she had spent lots of time with him before his death? Do you ever find it hard to recognize Jesus’ presence in the world?
