Fifth Sunday of Easter

 

9:00am Sunday School.

10:00am Worship with Holy Communion

 

INTRODUCTION

 

This Sunday's image of how the risen Christ shares his life with us is the image of the vine. Christ the vine and we the branches are alive in each other, in the mystery of mutual abiding that we read of in the gospel and the first letter of John. Baptism makes us a part of Christ's living and life-giving self and makes us alive with Christ's life. As the vine brings food to the branches, Christ feeds us at his table. We are sent out to bear fruit for the life of the world.

 

Readings

 

Acts 8:26–40

Psalm 22:25–31

All the ends of the earth shall remember and turn to the LORD. (Ps. 22:27)

1 John 4:7–21

John 15:1–8

 

 

Prayer of the Day

 

O God, you give us your Son as the vine

apart from whom we cannot live.

Nourish our life in his resurrection,

that we may bear the fruit of love

and know the fullness of your joy,

through Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord,

who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,

one God, now and forever.
