sixth Sunday of Epiphany

“Resurrection Hope in the Shadow of the Cross”

Rev. Benjamin Van Zetten Bruins will be preaching at Trinity on February 13.
“Resurrection Hope in the Shadow of the Cross” | After a few years, the Corinthians started losing hope in the return of Christ and their own resurrection. Paul insists their resurrection is certain because it is connected to Christ’s resurrection. 2,000 years later, we still live under the shadow of the cross, waiting for Christ’s return and our resurrection. How do we hold onto hope and trust the promise of resurrection?
1 Corinthians 15:12-26


Between Text and Sermon: 1 Corinthians 15:12-20. Mitzi J. Smith. Interpretation: a Journal of Bible and Theology. 67(3) 287-289

Sermon Discussion

Let’s make today’s sermon a two-way discussion. Come and share your reflections on the week’s scripture and message. We’ll also hear the ideas and questions the preacher left on the editing room floor.

Morning Prayer

(Epiphany 6)

Gracious God, thank you for the gift of this new day.
Guide my steps as I face choices with each breath:
to care for the earth or not,
to show compassion toward others or not,
to care for myself or not,
to be true to Christ or not.
May each of my choices draw me closer to you. Amen.

Evening Prayer

(Epiphany 6)

Tonight I come home to you in prayer, my God.
Thank you for guiding me through this day,
even when I was not conscious of it.
Now I give this day back to you,
entrusting all that I did and all that I left undone
to your compassionate care.
May I rest in peace. Amen.
