June 2, 2019 – Easter – Ascension Sunday – Scott Hodge

Easter 1C Keynote.007.jpeg

The Orchard Community nears the conclusion of the Easter season by hearing from Lead Pastor Scott Hodge about the liminal space experienced by the disciples as they witnessed the ascension of Jesus. We are reminded that, as uncomfortable as liminal spaces are, in those spaces the ordinary gives way to the extraordinary and possibility is given to those things that can only exist between endings and beginnings. In those spaces there is room for transformation, healing, renewal, and new life.
