Sermon

On this Easter Sunday, Senior Minister Molly Baskette talks about  “eukatastrophe,” the “sudden happy turn in a story which pierces you with a joy that brings tears.” She recounts the “dramedy” of her husband’s proposal to her,  and then imagines what it must have been like for Mary, whose grief at losing Jesus collides with her joy at his appearance to her in the garden outside the tomb. It turns out that Jesus’ story wasn’t complete with his death. It wasn’t finished yet, nor is our work in the world to bring about God’s realm.
