The time between Easter and Pentecost
April 17 - May 29
“As followers of Jesus Christ, living in this world —
which some seek to control, but which others view with despair —
we declare with joy and trust: Our world belongs to God!
From the beginning, through all the crises of our times,
until his kingdom fully comes, God keeps covenant forever.
Our world belongs to him! God is King! Let the earth be glad!
Christ is Victor; his rule has begun. Hallelujah!”
-from the contemporary testimony, Our World Belongs to God
This is a vital message to proclaim and a courageous declaration to make, at this particular moment in time. Our Eastertide series will follow the lectionary texts from Revelation, putting each one alongside a section of Our World Belongs to God. In Revelation, we have a sneak peek at the end of all things, and in Our World Belongs to God we have the big picture, beginning-to-end story of how we’re getting there. We want our faith to increase and our courage to rise as we take an honest look at the state of the world and still declare:
Our world belongs to God.
