The Journey to Easter, Together
We have been walking this Lenten journey with Jesus toward fierce love. Continue the journey this evening at 7:00 p.m. ET when we gather for Maundy Thursday Worship. Join us for an intimate celebration of the mandate to love, led by our magical Jerriese Johnson Gospel Choir, with a sermon and communion liturgy from me. We’ll gather together on Zoom so we can see one another, and hold each other in love—celebrating Jesus’ expansive welcome that binds us all together.

We’ll continue the journey together on Good Friday at 1:00 p.m. ET with reflections on The Seven Last Words of Christ. Rev. Amanda is hosting, and you’ll hear the diverse perspectives of our clergy on staff and others in our midst. It will also be a Zoom meeting; click here to register.
On Saturday morning at 11:00 a.m. ET, we’re hosting a wonderful virtual children’s Easter celebration. And our Holy Saturday Vigil, at 7:00 p.m. ET, will be hosted by Rev. Natalie, and shepherded by a team of wonderful lay leaders with word and song. Click here to register so you can be with us.
Early Easter Sunday morning, at 7:00 a.m. ET, Rev. Darrell and other family members will usher in the hope of resurrection in our Easter Sunrise Worship. Register here to join in.
On Easter at 11:45 a.m. ET, I’ll be preaching live, a sermon called “Which Jesus You Talkmbout?” We will have amazing new music—The Hallelujah Chorus—by our Middle Church Choir and some amazing editing.
Come evening, join us at 7:00 p.m. ET for a rebroadcast of Middle Rising, our benefit concert, with Tituss Burgess, Bevy Smith, Norah Jones, Chelsea Clinton and so many more. You can find it on middlechurch.org or our Facebook and YouTube channels.
I love you so much and look forward to completing to journey with you, to the fierce love that leads to new life.
