Pastor Carolyn Hetrick of Grace Lutheran Church, State College, Pa continues a series on the fruits of the Spirit found in Galatians 5:22-23 and how Scripture applies our faith in life. Today we focus upon compassion of heart and our starting point is compassion for one's self, imagining we are in the compassionate gaze of God. When is the last time you spent time with God in that gaze and assurance? How might tending our own inner life help us to pour out that fruit of compassion for others? Today's music is "What Wondrous Love is This?" Arranged by Judy Nishimura and played by Laurel Sanders, flute.

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.
