The Sixth Sunday of Easter

9 May 2021

This Sunday’s image of the life the risen Christ shares with us is the image of friendship.  We are called to serve others as Jesus came to serve; but for John’s gospel, the image of servanthood is too hierarchical, too distant, to capture the essence of life with Christ.  Friendship captures the love, the joy, the deep mutuality of the relationship into which Christ invites us.  The Greeks believed that true friends are willing to die for each other.  This is the mutual love of Christian community commanded by Christ and enabled by the Spirit.

First Reading: Acts 10:44-48

While Peter shares the good news of Jesus with a Gentile soldier and his family, the Holy Spirit comes upon them. Recognizing that the Spirit works inclusively in the lives of both Jews and Gentiles, Peter commands that these Gentiles also be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ.

Psalm: Psalm 98

Shout with joy to the Lord, all you lands. (Ps. 98:4)

Second Reading: 1 John 5:1-6

God’s children believe that Jesus is the Messiah and love God by keeping God’s commandments.  Thus the world is conquered not through military might but through love and faith.

Gospel: John 15:9-17

On the night of his arrest, Jesus delivers a final testimony to his disciples to help them in the days ahead.  Here, he repeats the most important of all his commands, that they love one another.

  • Live Streaming the Worship Service

    As of Sunday, 31 January, we are now "live streaming" the worship services. Our Sunday Services are at 9:30 a.m. You can join in by signing on to the website, and click on Worship. You will see a box saying "Live Streaming." Click on that and you will see the service. If it doesn't work the first time, refresh the page and try again.  The service will also be archived on the website approximately 2 hours after the live stream. You can go to the Worship page and click on the Sunday, which should be the first on the list or on the home page to the right, it will tell you the latest service you can see and if it has Sunday's date, click on that and it will take you to the service.

    We will be eliminating the videotaping of the service, as long as we are live streaming and it is being archived on the website.

    It will seem a little different since it is live, there is no editing such as listing the readings and the hymns. However, you will see the hymn titles and Evangelical Lutheran Worship number above the hymn. The bulletin for the Sunday is also on the website so you can print the bulletin earlier and follow along just as if you were sitting in the nave of the church.
