Bishop Elizabeth Eaton: It's a big story!

It’s a strange feeling to know that our story here in the metro is no longer just our story. The death of one man, on the streets of Minneapolis, has ignited a response from the whole country, and indeed around the world. It’s a big story. The history of racism and the continuing injustices that result remain a big story. As such we'll be listening to ELCA Presiding Bishop Elizabeth Eaton as she address the whole Church this Sunday. One more chance to wonder together, "now what?" and perhaps the question that will remain on our minds as we take up the work we're now called to do.

Scripture References: Matthew 28:16-20

From Series: "Now What?"

The tomb is empty, he is risen. But those who know and love Jesus are still primarily scared and confused. And they’re wondering, “now what?” The world has turned upside down, life has conquered death and yet there is still so much that suggests otherwise. For a community of faith like ours, in a time such as this, we can find ourselves asking the same thing, “now what?” How do we respond in a time of uncertainty? Which direction should we go? What plans should we make? If we are to have confidence in God, why do so many questions remain? For the eight weeks after Easter, we leave the Narrative Lectionary behind and consider a series of Gospel texts that recount how a risen Jesus restores the community of believers to become the church for tomorrow.
