Pilgrim Uniting Church, Adelaide SA
SUN 28-APR-2019 - 11.00 AM Sermon
Rev Dr Greg Elsdon
Easter 2 – The confused and frightened disciples of the recently executed Jesus of Nazareth were together behind locked doors, when Jesus himself appeared among them, his crucifixion wounds clearly visible. He was openly and unashamedly the wounded one, and his wounds were the unmistakable signs of his solidarity with humanity. Jesus honoured the human body, whether bruised, broken, wounded or disabled. The present sermon was delivered on Break the Silence Sunday, a time for churches to learn about the terrible pain, grief, humiliation and rejection suffered by victims of rape and sexual assault. We need communities of trust, courage and compassion, where our stories of woundedness are listened to, and where we can feel honoured and cared for in our stories.
John 20: 19-31
