Peter Christ - May 24, 2020

Is it time?

This week, in Luke’s story from the Book of Acts, the risen Jesus gives one final instruction to his disciples before leaving the building. As is often the case, it’s not what they were expecting nor likely what they wanted to hear. But, for a church living through a pandemic and wondering, “now what?” it’s a word that couldn’t be more timely.

Scripture References: Acts 1:1-9

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.
