About worship Sunday 5/16: The gospel for Easter’s seventh Sunday is always taken from the long prayer Jesus prays for his followers in John’s gospel on the night before his death, and always includes Jesus’ desire that his followers will be one as he and the Father are one. This oneness is not mere doctrinal agreement or institutional unity, but mutual abiding, interpenetrating life, mutual love, and joy. This oneness is the work of the Spirit whom we have received but also await. Come, Holy Spirit! (sundaysandseasons)
Looking ahead, next Sunday, the 23rd, is Pentecost - wear red! Easter Season Blessings, St. Peter's Lutheran Staff May Parish Visitor
