Grace to you and peace, from God our Creator and the Lord Jesus Christ! This weekend, we perhaps move more reflectively through our days with a shared feeling of loss following Rob’s death. I am struck this morning by the timeliness of the scripture readings for tomorrow’s worship, which speak of the disciples’ sadness and how they come to a place of hope. Our lives, our faith is like this, reflecting the sometimes steep arcs of human emotions. And folks, we do the best we can as we live through these moments. Our scripture also–and always–reminds us that love is the heart of the gospel, and is the call to the disciples as they configure themselves as a new body of faith, looking forward to the ways they can continue to love as they have been loved. This is the good news we share in tomorrow as we continue to celebrate the joy of resurrection!
Blessings and peace, Lisa
