Big Bang Easter Sermon

Easter Sunday 2014, Dr. Linda Nicholson and Pastor Rebecca Dolch jointly preached a triumphant Easter message. Download the sermon here. Download the handout here!

The purpose of this dialogue sermon was to tell people about the reality of the unseen that has been revealed through science, and to relate this reality to the creation and the resurrection.   

There are parallels between the creation of the universe and the resurrection of Christ and eternal life, and there are new understandings of reality (i.e. the Big Bang Theory, and the inter-conversion of light and matter) that have direct bearing on these Biblical stories.
