Happy Easter from the RFC!

We know this has been a challenging couple of years. And yet, Easter faith compels us to rise again, and again, to tend to the Good News of justice, peace, and love in our world. 

From all of us at the Religious Formation Conference: Happy Easter! 

We hope this Eastertide is a celebration of God’s goodness and joy, hope and renewal. As Scripture reminds us:

Do you not know that a little yeast leavens all the dough?

Clear out the old yeast,

so that you may become a fresh batch of dough...

- I Cor. 5:6b-8

Together, may we be yeast that leavens God’s unconditional love in our church and world. May our Easter faith be a catalyst for the new sprouting up around us.    

As we embark on this year’s Easter journey, know of our ongoing thoughts and prayers. Know, too, of the deep gratitude we have for all our members, partners and friends. 

Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia!
