Open Door Pulse | In the Midst of Easter's Tension

As you love deeply
the ground of your heart
will be broken more and more,
but you will rejoice
in the abundance
of the fruit it will bear. 

(Henri Nouwen)


This Week

Sunday's teaching explored Mark 14 as a way of living faithfully as the story moved closer to the cross. In the midst of Easter's tension - where Jesus is crowned as king but only after suffering and death - how might we stay alert, responding to God's invitation?

We'll continue this journey through Easter when we'll wrap up our exploration of Mark's Gospel. If you missed last week's exploration, listen to it online on our podcast.

LOTS of announcements and things coming up, read down to catch them all!
