The Eleventh Sunday after Pentecost

August 5, 2018

This is the first of five Sundays with gospel readings from John chapter six. Today, Jesus fees thousands of people with five loaves and two fish. No matter how small our offerings seem, Jesus can use them to transform the world.

The Twelfth Sunday

after Pentecost

August 12, 2018

The people Jesus fed last week are looking for more, a sign of His power. As always in John's gospel when people want a sign, Jesus offers Himself. He is the bread come from heaven to give life to the world.

The Thirteenth Sunday

after Pentecost

August 19, 2018

Jesus says that the bread He gives for the life of the world is His flesh, and however eats this bread has eternal life now and in the future. In Ephesians, Paul tells us what this life Jesus gives looks like. We live in love, as Christ loves us and gave Himself up for us.

The Fourteenth Sunday

after Pentecost

August 26, 2018

Today Jesus invites us to eat His flesh and drink His blood. It is here in St. John's gospel that we find not an institution of the Lord's Supper, but an invitation to commune with our Lord in an intimate way, abiding in Him as He abides in us.

Fifth Sunday of Easter

The Gospel readings shift now from Jesus' presence among His disciples to His presence with those who will come after. In today's reading, Jesus' original disciples and all those who follow are assured that although He has gone, He will return to bring us all home with Him.

May 17, 2020

Sixth Sunday of Easter

Jesus speaks clearly of the Holy Spirit in our gospel reading for today. After His resurrection, Jesus will give the Holy Spirit to the disciples. To those of us who came after, the Holy Spirit is given when we become God's children in baptism. No matter how it is received, the Holy Spirit enlightens us and keeps us in true faith.

Seventh Sunday of Easter

On the last Sunday of Easter we always hear from John 17. In this chapter, called the High Priestly Prayer, Jesus prays for His disciples, past, present and future. On this day we hear His prayer that all His followers would be one - united in His love for us and our love for Him and one another.

The Day of Pentecost

The day of Pentecost is often called "The Birthday of the Church." We celebrate the coming of the Holy Spirit to the disciples. Here we find the mission of the Church - to proclaim the love of God for all people and  demonstrating God's love in our care for others.
