Easter and Earth Day worship at PCUSA National Offices

Easter and earth day worship at PCUSA

Colleagues at the PCUSA national offices here in Louisville, KY gathered to plan, lead, and participate in worship yesterday. Worship themes wove together this evocative time of resurrection joy and re-commitment to God's creation-- this week that holds both Easter and Earth Day.

Proclaiming Christ's resurrection, and remembering John 12:24 that uses the metaphor of Christ as a seed that dies to then bring forth much fruit, in worship yesterday we focused on the seeds God is sowing in our own lives.

 We read scripture, sang, prayed, shared reflections, planted seeds, and shared communion.

  1. While caring for the earth is important, it seems as if the glory of Christ's resurrection is overshadowed by combining these themes. I think Christians should focus on the gospel--that we are sinners and cannot reconcile ourselves to the Father, and that the Son died for us to accomplish what we could not.
