3.27.16, “Is not this Joseph’s Son?” Easter Sunday, Rev. Kent Matthies

Jesus shared that he himself, was “bread come down from heaven.”  The gathered crowd was significantly impressed with his preaching.  However, they asked, “Is not this Joseph’s son?”  In other words: wait a minute!  Isn’t this the kid we saw growing up in the neighborhood?   Now he seems too big for his britches.  On Easter Sunday Unitarian Universalists proclaim that we all have power to rise up with sustaining love and courage, again and again and again.
