Sermons For Easter Sunday And Holy Week 2023

Alleluia. Christ is risen. Thank you for reading and supporting Interrupting the Silence. I am grateful for your presence through this past Holy Week and into Easter. Below are the sermons I preached. Easter peace be with you.

O God, who by the glorious resurrection of your Son Jesus Christ destroyed death and brought life and immortality to light: Grant that we, who have been raised with him, may abide in his presence and rejoice in the hope of eternal glory; through Jesus Christ our Lord, to whom, with you and the Holy Spirit, be dominion and praise for ever and ever. Amen.
