Easter 2018 at Grace Chapel

Anything can be broken. A bowl or a phone; a heart or a family; even a life. We pick up the pieces—if we can—and move on.

Once, in a room filled with fear in a city shaking with unrest, a group of men and women mourned together, trying to gather the fragments of life as they knew it. Their hearts, their hopes, and their world were broken.

Then the man they mourned came to them and said, “Peace.”

He’d broken the power of death.

And when he did, damage of all kinds began to be undone.... and that undoing continues today. Easter means anything—anything—can be unbroken.

Come celebrate with us, and experience the life-giving, unbreaking hope of the resurrection this Easter Sunday.

About Our Easter Artwork

Ever see a piece of ceramic pottery with beautiful gold or silver lines running through it? That's an example of a traditional Japanese art form called Kintsugi. Kintsugi is the art of restoring broken things, while preserving their history to create something even more beautiful. With Kintsugi, you're seeing an artist's work of turning a broken piece of art into something un-broken.

That’s the heart of the Gospel – the story of redemption and restoration. Recognizing the history of the object, and visibly incorporating the repair into the new piece instead of disguising it. In a way, it's a perfect description of what Easter is all about, isn't it?
