Sunday, May 5, 2019 (Worship Service at 9:00 a.m.) ~ The disciples make a big splash and breakfast with the risen Jesus in the gospel.  Wading in the water (remembering our baptism) and eating with Jesus (celebrating the holy communion) is our weekly encounter with the risen Christ.  Jesus asks us, with Peter, again and again:  Do you love me?  And Jesus invites us, again and again, to follow him, bringing the Easter life to others.

AND Sunday, May 12, 2019 (Worship Service at 9:00 a.m.) ~ The gift of new life, of eternal life, is the gift of the risen Christ.  It is the promise of Jesus.  It was true for Dorcas in Joppa.  It was true for those “who have come out of the great ordeal” in the Revelation vision.  It is true for us and for all the baptized:  Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.

Sunday, May 26, 2019 (Worship Service at 9:00 a.m.) ~ Visions abound in the readings for the sixth Sunday of Easter.  Paul has a vision about what to do.  John has a vision of what will be.  The risen Lord Jesus provides visions of peace that passes human understanding and power beyond human imagination.
