18 Apr Episode 197 | Easter Message 2022 (Luke 7:11-17)
We celebrated Easter 2022 with Pastor Chris Sicks who shared a story in Luke 7 describing a woman who experienced a double tragedy losing both her husband and now her only son. She lost the two people she loved most in the world, she lost her support and she was alone. Yet her encounter with Jesus changed everything.
Chris Sicks is the pastor of One Voice Fellowship, a multilingual church in Falls Church, Virginia with members from 16 countries. He is founder and president of ‘For the Nations DC’, offering English classes to refugees and immigrants so our new neighbors can learn English and experience the love of Jesus.
Chris served on staff at Alexandria Presbyterian Church for 20 years. As Pastor of Mercy, he labored to show compassion in Word and deed to the congregation and community. Previously, he worked at Gospel Rescue Mission (homeless shelter and drug treatment program in Washington, DC) and ran a scholarship/mentoring program for inner-city youth. He’s been a newspaper editor, restaurant manager, and Army officer.
Chris is a graduate of Reformed Theological Seminary DC. Chris is the author of Tangible: Making God Known through Deeds of Mercy and Words of Truth (NavPress 2013).
