Easter (2018.04.01 Sermon)
April 3rd, 2018 | John Chandler
John Chandler guides our celebration of resurrection with a sermon on 1 Corinthians 15:1-11.
- “For us, you see, the church is not just another institution. It’s a failing but never quite failed attempt, by limited people, to perpetuate the unlimited generosity of God in the world. It’s built, of all things, on a pun. I said “embodies” and the word is exact. The church is a body that wants to be a body. That is, it’s a corpus, a corporation, a “body” of people in the sense of being a gathered crowd of them, which aspires to be, to carry on from, to keep alive and present and breathing, the literal corporeal body of Jesus, equipped with two arms and two legs and probably the beard and quite possibly the bad teeth, in first-century Palestine.” — Francis Spufford in Unapologetic
