The Cross and the Empty Tomb

Matt, Derek, and Alastair gather to meditate and ask questions about the events of Holy Week, from Palm Sunday to Easter morning.

As we approach Palm Sunday, Alastair, Matt, and Derek meditate—and ask incisive questions—upon the Cross, the Resurrection, the Triumphal Entry, the Transfiguration, and the true center of our faith.

The Book of the Month for March 2024 is W. Ross Hastings’ Pastoral Ethics: Moral Formation as Life in the Trinity. Hastings provides pastors an evangelical and trinitarian framework for moral formation and ethical discernment. For Hastings, ethics must be reclaimed as theological. Theology without ethics becomes gnosticism. Ethics without theology leads to legalism and death. Christian ethics participates in God’s life and God’s work.
