    Scripture: Matthew 25:31-45

    We were honored to have Sarah Jobe and Cindy Locklear share in today's service. Melissa introduced chaplain Sarah Jobe from the Interfaith Prison Ministry for Women who shared about the prison awareness quilt crocheted by women incarcerated at North Carolina Correctional Institution for Women as they survived COVID in prison. Cindy shared her testimony about her reliance on her faith during her time in prison and particularly what it was like during the pandemic.

    Following their message, the congregation had the opportunity to pray for women in prison while meditating on the quilt and listening to two Conviction Songs.

    Scripture: John 21:1-19

    Jesus visits the disciples a third time after his resurrection, this time as some of them have been fishing.

    "Where is Melissa going with this sermon?" That's what many were thinking as she started her sermon, telling us that our bodies are "an island of creatures."

    The real body of Jesus joins the disciples and eats fish and bread with them. We're invited to a fleshy resurrection. The human and divine. Same but different. By being human, Jesus links his body to what's going on in the world. He becomes part of our biome.

    Melissa starts out with a story of Brer Rabbit for the children on this Holy Humor Sunday. She then recounts how those who had been enslaved in our country knew how to quietly and secretly assert their resistance, trickery, and humor. They would use ordinary means to confront power they could not fight openly.

    When we say that Jesus plays a trick on the devil, we mean that Jesus puts on a life like ours, and gets into the heart of brokenness and destruction, and then turns himself over to it. And then something breaks open.
