Need to inject some energy and fresh ideas on how to approach biblical texts for Easter 2021? Feeling weary and need some words of encouragement? Matt Woodley is joined by Pastor Darrell Johnson (50 years of preaching Easter sermons) and Bishop Benjamin Kwashi (38 years of preaching Easter sermons) as they share honest, personal stories on how they’ve preached on Easter in the midst of their hardest ministry seasons.
They’ll share ways to refocus this season on the implications of the Resurrection for your church and our world (what John Stott called "the up-to-the-minute relevance of the Resurrection"). If you're stuck or struggling with what to do this Easter, our hope is you'll walk away with a handful of good possibilities.
