Season and Week: Easter | Second Sunday of Easter
Sermon Title: The Roots of Justice, Part 6—Right-Making: Waiting for Resurrection
Speaker: John Ortberg
For the next several weeks, we turn from investigating principles of justice to investigating ways it can be implemented in our lives, our relationships, our church, and our world.
This week, we’ll watch a message from John Ortberg, which was delivered at a conference for staff of InterVarsity Christian Fellowship. He talks about the Saturday between Good Friday and Easter Sunday. He describes a three-day story that begins with trouble and ends with deliverance, but the middle is dominated by silence. And he outlines three postures we can take while we endure the silence of “Saturday” experiences—despair, denial, or waiting.
John Ortberg is a pastor and author, currently serving at Menlo Church in Menlo Park, California. InterVarsity is a college ministry that establishes and advances witnessing communities of students and faculty.
