Welcome to Resurrection Lutheran Church of Coronado!

Church Season:  Easter


In Easter worship we can embody a witness to God’s loving activity in what Dr. Makant, a religious studies professor at Lenoir-Rhyne University,  calls “the poignant gap” between Easter morning and Christ’s coming again–this in-between time in which we boldly affirm “Christ is risen, indeed! Alleluia!” and also live with the reality of loss, anxiety, and grief.  We are both/and people.  We both genuinely mourn, and we do not mourn as people without hope.  “Hope,” says Makant, “is the future tense of faith.  It is creative space, grounded in our knowledge of the resurrection-because we know that dead people stay dead . . . until they don’t.  Our knowledge of the resurrection is based on the trustworthy character of God.”

People come to worship on Easter morning and thorough out the Easter season aching not only to hear about but also to experience the love of God showing up in the midst of the reality of their lives.  Sub contraria specie, which means “under the form of the opposite,” means God can be found not only in the unlikely places we think of first-the cross, the manger, at the table with sinners, eating on the sabbath-but also right in the middle of whatever is really going on in hour congregations, your community, in the nation, in the world.  There are no godforsaken places or people.
