Fifth Sunday of Easter

19 May 2019

Easter initiates a new day.  It anticipates a new heaven and a new earth.  The risen Lord is making all things new.  In the mystery of holy baptism God has made new people of us.  Today the Lord Jesus invites us to see everyone in a new light----through the lens of love.

Acts 11:1-18

In defense of his earlier baptism of pagan believers, Peter demonstrates to the members of the Jerusalem church that God's intention to love Gentiles as well as Jews is revelaed in Jesus' own testimony.  In this way the mission to the Gentiles is officially authorized.

Psalm 148

The splendor of the Lord is over earth and heaven.

Revelation 21:1-6

John's vision shows us that in the resurrection the new age has dawned; God dwells with us already.  Yet we wait for the time when the tears that cloud our vision will be wiped away.  Then we will see the new heaven, new earth, and new Jerusalem.

John 13:31-35

After washing the disciples' feet, predicting his betrayal, and then revealing his betrayer, Jesus speaks of his glorification on the cross.  This deep complicated love of Jesus, even to death on the cross, will be the distinctive mark of Jesus' communtiy.

Sixth Sunday of Easter

26 May 2019

Visions abound in the readings for the sixth Sunday of Easter.  Paul has a vision about what to do.  John as a vision of what will be.  The risen Lord Jesus provides visions of peace that passes human understanding and power beyond human imagination.

Acts 16:9-15

A vision compels Paul to move his ministry into Greece.  There he meets Lydia, an important person in the business community, whose heart has been opened by God to receive the gospel.  Her conversion and baptism provide the impetus for the founding of the church at Philippi.

Psalm 67

Let the nations be glad and sing for joy.

Revelation 21:10, 22---22:5

John's vision of a new Jerusalem coming out of heaven provides continuity with God's past actions.  Yet in this new city, God's presence replaces the temple, and the glory of God and the Lamb supplant sun and moon.

John 14:23-29

As Jesus talks of returning to the Father, he promises to send the Advocate, the Holy Spirit, who will teach Jesus' followers and remind them of all that Jesus taught.  Even more, those in whom God makes a home will experience a peace that overcomes fear.
