Resilient Faith & God’s Embrace During Crisis

April 2, 2021 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Join us this Good Friday
7:30 pm

Dr. Barry Huff will talk about the true meaning of Easter


This Good Friday talk will inspire your resilience through our world’s current crises by featuring biblical texts written during crises and biblical characters who overcame crises, including Hagar, Job, and Jesus. Through the lens of lament psalms, the Gospels depict Jesus’s crucifixion.

During this pandemic, we persevere with Christ through our crises and crosses. While we practice social distancing, nothing can distance us “from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord” (Romans 8:39 NRSV).

As we celebrate that “He is risen” (Mark 16:6), we too rise with Christ through resilient “faith in the power of God” (Colossians 2:12 CEB).

This Easter, may Jesus’s resurrection inspire our resurrection of faith!
