    Incarnation

    A baby is born in a stable in the backwater town of Bethlehem. His parents gave him the name Jesus. But the prophets, the shepherds, the wise men and angels addressed him by other names - titles really. He was the Messiah, the Lord, the Savior, Emmanuel, the Word made Flesh and the Light of the World. 

    In this sermon series, which includes the 4 weeks of Advent, Candlelight Christmas Eve and the week after Christmas, Rev. Adam Hamilton will explore the meaning of these titles and what they tell us about the child whose birth we celebrate at Christmas.

    The Royal Titles: MESSIAH and LORD
    The Deliverer: SAVIOR
    The Incarnation: EMMANUEL
    The Messenger: WORD
    The Revealer: LIGHT OF THE WORLD

    You will find here all the series resources which were produced, along with the weekly sermons.

    Mt. Gerazim is located in the northern West Bank, approximately 30 milies north of Jerusalem. It is the site of Joseph's tomb and Jacob's well. This well has been associated with Jacob for more than 2,000 years, even though the well is not specifically mentioned in the Old Testament. This is where the Gospel of John tells of Jesus' encounter with the Samaritan woman.

    The Jordan River connects the Sea of Galilee and the Dead Sea. This resource includes footage of the river near Qasr-El-Yehud, on the western bank about 10km east of Jericho, traditionally held to be the site where Jesus was baptized by John the Baptist. This is also believed to be the place where the Children of Israel crossed the Jordan and entered the Promised Land after their 40 years of wandering in the desert. Elijah's ascension to heaven in a fiery chariot after he and Elisa crossed the Jordan is also attributed to this site.

  • Lenten Journal
    Lenten Journal
    In the early days of the church the season of Lent was a time to prepare new believers for the sacrament of baptism. While some Christians still participate in Lent for this, most Christians today embrace Lent as a time of repentance, reflection and fasting and strive to turn their full attention to God. One of the ways Christians turn their attention to God is to choose to give up something they value—chocolate, screen-time or social media, candy, food or certain foods, etc. We choose to give something up to remind ourselves who really sustains us—Jesus Christ, our risen Lord. For this reason, Church of the Resurrection encourages people to not only give something up, but to take something on. For example, some take on more regular Scripture reading and study, giving time to volunteer or in some other way giving something of themselves for the sake of others.
    Thus, this journal is built around the questions:
    What will you give up?
    What will you take on?
    We’ve created this Lenten Journal for you to use as a guide. A spiritual guide, that will work with our weekend Lenten worship services. We pray the guide will help you in giving something up, but also in taking something on. The guide is designed to help you read Scripture daily, reflect on and apply what you read, pray and consider tangible responses to serve God and others.
