In today’s video we meet Jesus as the living path by which we live and witness to God’s love.  You’ll find something for the kids, scripture, an Easter Message, prayers and music.

Jesus, the Way, the Truth, and the Life

We bear witness to Jesus’ promise of His presence

As we continue to celebrate the fifty days of Easter, today’s gospel includes Jesus’ promise that he goes to prepare a place for his followers in his Father’s house. Our baptism commissions us to share Jesus’ mission in the world.

As 1 Peter reminds us, we are a holy people, called to proclaim the one who called us out of darkness into light. In words and deeds we bear witness to the risen Christ—our way, our truth, our life.
