Rebellious Hope: A Good Friday Sermon

2013, 3 pp
This sermon was preached at the 2013 joint-Good Friday service of four Winnipeg congregations (Fort Garry Mennonite Fellowship, Home Street Mennonite, Charleswood Mennonite, Hope Mennonite). Although, like all sermons, it remains time/context-specific, we also felt this deserved a wider reading.

Gordon begins, "We have gathered here today at the cross, together with the courageous women, as witnesses to a gruesome public execution, a politically motivated killing. And also with the devoted women who followed Jesus all the way to the cross, we are here a few hours later, holding vigil with the dead body of Jesus. On this dreadful day--it is not a good day--with those first dedicated onlookers, we look death squarely in the face, our hopes shattered, as we feel that dark power of death even invading our own being, while wondering if that power is what is truly supreme in this world."
