An Easter People's Lamentation of Hope

An Easter People's Lamentation of Hope

Share

In his Easter Message, United Church of Christ General Minister and President the Rev. John C. Dorhauer invites all in the wider church to celebrate the hope of Easter.


We are an Easter people.

Shaped by the experiences of death, the wells of our enduring faith spring up and speak to us of the eternal.

This fundament, this bedrock, it grounds us.

And, as Paul writes in 1 Thessalonians – we therefore do not grieve as those who have no hope.

I can't tell you how many times over the last year and a half I have had to remind myself that we are, in the end, an Easter people.
