"The Holy Myrrhbearers"*
with Rev. Karen Lindquist
and congregants of Interfaith Community Sanctuary

Sunday April 26th 2015 is the Sunday of the Holy Myrrhbearers* in Orthodox Churches.

* The Holy Myrrhbearers were the women who walked with Jesus during his earthly ministry in Galilee, providing support out of their own means They remained with him even during the most dangerous time of his arrest and execution. They stood by the cross and accompanied him to burial. Because of the impending Sabbath, the burial preparations were brief. Jewish custom at the time dictated that mourners return to the tomb every day for three days. Once the Sabbath had passed, the women returned at the earliest possible moment, bringing myrrh to anoint the body. The truth of the Resurrection was revealed to them. They were sent to tell the Apostles. They are recognized as the apostles to the Apostles and are referred to as "Equal to the Apostles."

Our spiritual discernment for the month of April, the "Hoop of the Village," has us celebrating teachers, mentors, and carriers of tradition. We look at The Holy Myrrhbearer's as teachers and mentors to the Apostles, beginning a legacy as the first carriers of a new tradition. Similarly, our interfaith congregation are carriers of the new tradition of interfaith knowledge and interfaith harmony.

This worship service is an experience of how we together co-create new worship experiences with new understanding of the traditional teachings of many spiritual paths.

Music, song and chant will be shared by Suniai.

Our Spiritual Discernment for 2015:
"Restoring Balance to the World: Hoops of Honor"
Based upon the prophecy: “When the earth is suffering and we see our children suffering there will come a generation that will restore Honor for all people.”

In April we explore The Hoop of the Village. Teachers are celebrated here as the purveyors of tradition. It is the teacher’s responsibility to teach children how to be positive, productive citizens of the community and nation. Teachers help children understand the value of tradition and the wisdom of the elders while supporting them to create their own future. We celebrate the Mentors and carriers of tradition.
