Sunday, April 7, 2024 ~ Worship Service at 10:00 a.m. ~ 2nd Sunday of Easter

The Easter season is a week of weeks, seven  Sundays when we play in the mystery of Christ’s presence, mostly through the  glorious Gospel of John. Today we gather with the disciples on the first Easter, and  Jesus breathes the Spirit on us. With Thomas we ask for a sign, and Jesus offers us  His wounded self in the broken bread. From frightened individuals we are  transformed into a community of open doors, peace, forgiveness, and material  sharing such that no one among us is in need.

Sunday, April 14, 2024 ~ Worship Service at 10:00 a.m. ~ Third Sunday of Easter

The gospel for the third Sunday of Easter is always one in which the risen Christ shares food with the disciples, meals that are the Easter template for the meal we share each Sunday. In today’s gospel, Jesus both shares the disciples’ food and shows them the meaning of His suffering, death, and resurrection through the scriptures, the two main elements of our Sunday worship.

Sunday, April 21, 2024 ~ Worship Service at 10:00 a.m. ~ Fourth Sunday of Easter The image of the good shepherd shows us how the risen Christ brings us to life. It is the relationship between the shepherd and the sheep, one of mutual knowledge and love, that gives the shepherd authority. The shepherd’s willingness to lay down his life for the sheep shows his love. First John illustrates what it means to lay down our lives for one another by the example of sharing our wealth with any sibling in need.

Sunday, April 28, 2024 ~ Worship Service at 10:00 a.m. ~ Fifth Sunday of Easter This Sunday’s image of how the risen Christ shares His life with us is the image of the vine. Christ the vine and we the branches are alive in each other, in the mystery of mutual abiding described in the gospel and the first letter of John. Baptism makes us a part of Christ’s living and life-giving self and makes us alive with Christ’s life. As the vine brings food to the branches, Christ feeds us at His table.  We are sent out to bear fruit for the life of the world.

​​May the beauty of God be reflected in your eyes, the love of God be

reflected in your hands, the wisdom of God be reflected in your words,

and the knowledge of God flow from your heart,

that all might see, and seeing, believe.

+ + + + + + +

Neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor rulers, nor things present,

nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus.

God, the creator, Jesus, the Christ, and the Holy Spirit, the comforter,

bless you and keep you in eternal love.

The members of New Jerusalem Evangelical Lutheran Church wish you a blessed day and we pray that your day is filled with hope, love, peace, and good health!
