Pastor Carolyn Hetrick of Grace Lutheran Church, State College, PA leads the third of a five session Bible study on trees in Scripture and what they tell us about God, our place in creation and abundant life. This episode we examine the oaks of Moreh and Mamre and the hospitality given to and by Abram/Abraham in  Genesis; also the sycamore tree that hosted Zacchaeus so he could see Jesus who called him and down ushering in hospitality and restoration of community branching ever wider. Where have you encountered God under a tree? This week's music: "Be Still and Know the I Am God." This choral setting of Psalm 46:10, Be Still (and know that I am God) was composed by Laurel Sanders in 2020, during the COVID pandemic.  Following the lead of the lyrics, the anthem alternates between moments of quiet, tension, and release, with an underlying thread of stillness and calm.

The Easter story is about Jesus showing up to those struggling with hope, and those who had come through a traumatic time, the time we call Holy Week. How does Jesus show up today for us? In the woods, in Scripture, maybe even in chicken nuggets and s'mores and hikes. Pastor Carolyn Hetrick, of Grace Lutheran Church, State College and Pastor Nathan Pile, Executive Director of Camp Sequanota talk about the resurrection story of Easter in Luke, and how those earliest believers took different paths growing in faith just like we do; how much we need each other in community, where we are finding hope and how God is shaping us as people of faith in this time.
