The most groundbreaking event in history was Jesus’ resurrection from the dead. His life, death and resurrection changed everything. The resurrection proves that Jesus is who says he is and that he is the ultimate authority on life. In this series we will look at how Jesus’ resurrection and the early church broke new ground in the history of the world and how God desires the Church to do the same today.
Week One: Happy Easter!
Happy Easter! Today is a momentous day … it is the day we celebrate the greatest triumph in human history, the day Jesus triumphed over death and brought everlasting life for each of us.
Week Two: Healing
In Week 2 of our Easter Message Series: Groundbreaking, we hear of the many wonders done among the people at the hands of the apostles. Each of us has the ability to be a source of healing. This Divine Mercy Sunday, let us step into that space of trust and vulnerability and commit to being Christ’s love to a world in desperate need of healing and mercy.
Week Three: Fear Not
In Week 3 of Groundbreaking, we explore fear. When the world’s version of our worth and purpose informs our sense of self, we fear man and that fear drives our choices and interactions. But true groundbreaking freedom comes from truly knowing in our gut that we are God’s and from Him alone do we derive our purpose and worth.
Week Four: Evangelization
In today’s message, we hear how the early Church broke new ground by sharing the Gospel. Even though the first disciples were met with resistance, they persevered. We, like the first disciples, are privileged to and have a responsibility to share that same good news. We can break ground with people who don’t know Jesus. We can invest in them, spend time with them, and share our joy with them. We do this because we are loved so completely; it is uncontainable, we must share it with others. And like the early Church, we too must persevere and trust through Christ’s love, that we planting seeds that God will bring to fruition.
Week Five: Sacrifice
Today’s message discusses the sacrifices we must make.
Week Six: Ministry
Today’s first reading recounts a time of turmoil for the early Church. It exposed the natural inclination for churches to become insular and rigid. In this week’s message, we explore how even today, it is easy to become siloed and isolated in our day to day relationships, but God asks more of us. We must make it easy for people to come to Christ. We must make our faith, our experience, and our hope accessible to others. When we do so, we become the face of Christ.
Week Seven: Ascension
This week we remember the Ascension of Jesus. In that moment, the apostles could have simply gone their separate ways but they stayed together, they prayed, they prepared. In this week’s message, we too are reminded to pray and seek formation first, then action. If we are to be Christ’s face to others, we must form are our hearts to His will.
Week Eight: Pentacost
This weekend, on the feast of Pentecost, we conclude this 8 week series, Groundbreaking. Pentecost marks the founding, the groundbreaking, of our church. The same Holy Spirit, who empowered Jesus’s disciples to build the church, calls to us now. Put your gifts to work for the good of God’s people. Our parish is home to many ministries that serve our church and our wider community. Open your gifts and put them to good use! St. Paul’s needs you, our wider community needs you, God needs you!
