“Transforming the Cross” - - Easter Sunday - - April 20, 2014

In this special Easter message, Rev. Dr. Andrea Ayvazian leads a group of people each carrying their own cross. Each cross bears a double sided placard: one side describes a burden or challenge once faced; the other side proclaims how that issue has been transformed. We call upon God to help transform us and "change our names." (Mark 16:1-8)
