Any event of significant seismic magnitude sends waves of energy that can be felt hundreds of miles from the epicenter. The resurrection of Jesus is an event of such cosmic magnitude that its effects are felt in every corner of life. The empty tomb of Jesus is the epicenter of religious truth that ruptures our fragile human wisdom and establishes in its place an unshakable foundation of divine revelation. On Easter we see that everything starts with Easter, or ends without it. Human wisdom assumes that all religious claims are essentially the same—enigmatic sayings to help you make sense of life. But Christianity makes a claim unlike any other—either a particular man named Jesus was raised from the dead or his life (and ours) ultimately means nothing. Easter is the central historical event that establishes a central religious truth. Without this truth everything ends, but with this truth everything is just beginning! Worship for Easter Sunday is at 9:30 AM.

For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received: that Christ died for our sins in accordance with the Scriptures, that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day in accordance with the Scriptures.
— 1 Cor. 15:3-4

Building a community of love and commitment
in a world of selfishness and pride

 

These days you’re more likely to see a selfie than a selfless act of service. We live in a culture that deals in the currency of give and take. Unconditional commitment and sacrificial love seem to have disappeared.

The solution isn’t good advice, the solution is the good news of Jesus Christ which saves us from sin’s tyranny in our lives.

St. Stephen Lutheran preaches the historic Christian faith—a faith that has consistently brought love, commitment, and life.
