Good News/Fake News
April 1 – April 15, 2018

We don’t know who to believe anymore.
We are told the most trusted news sources could be full of made up tales. In this respect, we are similar to Jesus’ Disciples who struggled to hear the news of Christ’s resurrection with confidence and joy. Through faith, we learn the truth of the God who is too good to not be true. This is what makes Easter more than just a day. It turns us into Easter people
with a worldview of resurrection.
