News: Life After Resurrection

I love Easter Sunday in worship. The music is beautiful and uplifting. The church is full with members and visitors. All the flowers make for a beautiful sanctuary. Having that time in our service when so many people come forward to sing the Hallelujah Chorus from Handel’s Messiah with our choir is just soul-stirring. And in our church this year, we had the tremendous bonus of having that wonderful liturgical art piece appear for the first time on Easter Sunday morning. Easter, and the worship service that Sunday morning, is inspiring to me.

But then what? We don’t live on Easter Sunday every day. Once Easter is past, do things simply revert to the same old world? Or does the fact that Jesus was raised from death change things for us? John Buchanan is the editor of Christian Century Magazine and the former Senior Pastor at Fourth Presbyterian Church in Chicago. He wrote an editorial in the April 18, 2012 issue of Christian Century which touched on these questions. The following is part of what he said.

News: May is "Sustainable Travel to Worship" Month

Each year for the last several years, we, along with other faith communities in Madison and Dane County, have participated in “Sustainable Travel to Worship” month during May. We have encouraged all of us to travel to worship in a more “energy-sustainable” manner than we usually do, in an effort to model behavior that can cut down on petroleum use and environmental pollution. This year, we will be participating in this program once again.
