In this season where we are being asked to stay in place, it may feel (and be!) like we don’t have enough room. We’re confined to a single place and asked to make the most out of an otherwise untenable situation. What would it look like, as an Easter people, if we believe that God is showing up in the spaces we are most familiar with: the rooms of our homes? Over the Easter season, we’ll think about some of the different rooms of a home — the bedroom, kitchen, office, and living room to name a few. We’ll share stories of how God has shown up in those spaces in the Scriptures. And we’ll think about how God is asking us to tell stories of God’s love from those places, even in times like these. Perhaps as we do this, we’ll discover more of Jacob’s vision of God in Genesis 28: “Jacob woke up from his sleep. He said, ‘God is in this place—truly. And I didn’t even know it!” He was terrified. He whispered in awe, “Incredible. Wonderful. Holy. This is God’s House. This is the Gate of Heaven.’” (Genesis 28:16-17, MSG)[Help us create visuals for this series.

God’s Love is Real. God’s Love is Active. God’s Love is for Everyone.
