"To say ‘I believe in Jesus Christ . . . who rose from the dead,’ is to say I believe that the Resurrection goes on and on and on forever. Every time Jesus rises in our own hearts in new ways, the Resurrection happens again. Every time we see Jesus where we did not recognize him before — in the faces of the poor, in the love of the unloved, in the revelatory moments of life, Jesus rises anew. The real proof of the Resurrection lies not in the transformation of Jesus alone but in the transformation awaiting us who accept it."
Joan Chittister



Throughout the school year we are exploring the arc of the biblical story with the help of The Narrative Lectionary. From September to mid-December the preaching texts begin with the early chapters of Genesis, move through the stories of Israel’s early history, the exodus, the kings, prophets, exile and return. From Christmas to Easter there is sustained reading from the Gospel of John. From Easter to Pentecost the texts are chosen from Acts and Paul’s letters.
