This video is a worship service for March 14, 2021, the 4th Sunday in Lent, led by Rev Audrey Walker at First Congregational Church of West Brattleboro in Vermont. The title of the sermon is "When We Are Afraid of the Dark" which is based on the scripture passage for the morning - John 3:1-21. This passage describes the conversation between Nicodemus, the Pharisee, and Jesus, in which Jesus talks of the unimaginable love of God and hints at the comparison between the "lifting up" of the snake by Moses in the wilderness, and Jesus' own "lifting up" on the cross as well as his resurrection. Just as the looking up at the snake gave salvation to the people, so does Jesus looking towards the cross give salvation and eternal life. This passage contains the well known and much beloved verse John 3:16​ in which Jesus tells Nicodemus that "God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him may not perish but may have eternal life." Ultimately, there is nothing to fear in life if we stay close to the cross.
