As the important holidays of Christmas and Easter pass, it becomes evermore important to remember to keep Jesus relevant in our day-to-day lives and keep that faith alive throughout the rest of the year.
Because sometimes life gets in the way of worshipping and keeping the faith as we would like, New Life Lutheran Church has created “Making Sense of the Cross,” which is a series of sermons dedicated to learning about Jesus’ life and the many messages and lessons we can learn through studying his path and sacrifices for us.
Viva la Vida, or Long Live Life is the message around which the sermon is based. Because Jesus died for our sins and was resurrected, it reminds us to live and love fully each day. New Life Lutheran has taken these concepts and broken them down by week, which began on Easter with “The Resurrection” and ends on May 19 with “The Pentecost.” In between, they will “Live Belief,” “Live Again,” Live Connected,” “Live Love,” “Live Relationship,” “Live Witness,” and will wrap it up with “Live Mission.”
Each of these lectures is designed to touch on different ways we can incorporate Jesus into our lives on days that fall before and after Christmas and Easter.
New Life Lutheran believes that “God has a mission, and God creates the church to live that mission.” Because of this, they feel that all Christians and followers of Jesus have a sense of responsibility to spread that mission throughout our community and the world.
If you or someone you know are interested in joining New Life Lutheran to explore the life and meaning of Jesus and his beliefs, you are invited to attend the remaining sessions to “Make Sense of the Cross,” and learn how you can remember to live faithfully throughout the rest of the year.
