Resurrecting Easter – Sunday Seminar

Sunday Seminar: 11:00 a.m. in the Fellowship Hall. Today, Pastor David will offer a presentation on the variety of ways Easter is celebrated among our Orthodox sisters and brothers. Insights from John Dominic Crossan’s and Sarah Sexton Crossan’s new book, Resurrecting Easter, will be featured. How did Eastern (Orthodox) and Western (Roman Catholic and Protestant) manifestations of Christianity come to celebrate Easter in such different ways? What can we learn from Orthodox Christians that might deepen our spirituality, and enrich our celebration of Easter?”
