We are together, even when apart

Church is being together.  We sing, we pray, we pass the peace.  We share the bread and the wine.  

Church looks different right now.  We’re not in the same place but we’re still together.  We’re thinking about each other.  We’re singing and praying.  We’re passing the peace by calling our friends.  Or maybe we’re sending them emails or letters.  The bread and the wine are still part of us, even if we’re not at the table.

The Chapel of the Cross is our church, and we are the Chapel of the Cross. We are the church no matter where we are, which is kind of funny to think about.  How are you the church today? How are you singing and praying and passing the peace? How are the bread and wine a part of you today?

Doors of Your Heart

Jesus appeared to his disciples and they had SO. MANY. QUESTIONS. But Jesus had already answered them. He had already told his friends what mattered. The disciples wanted to keep knocking on the door but Jesus’ heart had already opened. It had shown them the truest Love.

Jones and Zan had never heard this song before. It’s by the English band called The Beat.

A Question

This past Sunday, we learned about “Doubting” Thomas. He needed to ask the Risen Jesus who he was. This Sunday, Jesus will ask the disciples questions. “Why are you frightened?” “Why do doubts arise in your hearts?” “Do you have anything to eat?” Here’s a song about a question. It’s by the band Bombadil.

Children’s Chapel – April 11

Today in Children’s Chapel, Walden and Jeremiah share the story of Doubting Thomas. If you have Faith-at-Home supplies, you can use them to think about doubts and questions you have. It’s okay to ask questions! Curiosity is a gift from God! But don’t let curiosity cause you too much worry. Remember what Jesus said to his friends: Peace be with you. You never need question that you are loved.

Easter Monday

Happy Easter! Happy Back-to-School to those returning to in-person learning and those continuing with remote instruction. Whew! There’s a lot going on. Which is why you probably don’t need daily posts here anymore. We’ll keep posting Children’s Chapel every Sunday plus some bonus videos during the week. But we’ll stop posting every day. Faith-at-Home is like breathing now. It always was.

But we do want to share some pictures from Holy Week and Easter. Where did you see Jesus? How did you celebrate New Life? Where will you see Resurrection in the days ahead?
