Seventh Sunday of Easter
“Glorifying God in a Pandemic”
by Doug Gebhard, Interim Pastor

Acts 1:6-14 / John 17:1-11

The disciples overheard Jesus praying for them. He prayed they would understand that eternal life isn’t a hereafter but here and now experience. Glorifying God isn’t singing praises but revealing the nature of God. With the disciples expected to live this kind of faith, no wonder Jesus prayed for them.

Psalm 66:8-20 / John 14:15-21

Jesus begins his discourse with the strangest statement:  “If you love me…”  If?  Of course we love him.  Then, Jesus said, show me!  Feed my sheep and tend to the lambs, i.e., care for others as I have cared for you.

by Doug Gebhard, Interim Pastor

1 Peter 2:2-10 / John 14:1-14

The first Christians developed a strong communal ethic as witnessed in the Acts of the Apostles. They shared everything for the common good. They also ministered to one another as the priests in the Temple might minister the the people. The Spirit of God held them together and inspired them to be this kind of people.
