Weekly Word

 

I cannot count how many times in the course of the week that I am required to provide proof of one thing or another. Perhaps it is proof of a bank account, for the depositing or withdrawal of money. Perhaps it is an MCP card for some kind of medical needs. Perhaps it is my voice and my name to verify who I am on the phone.

Today in the Scriptures, Jesus is offering peace, and showing the disciples that he is present, resurrected, among them. He shows his hands and feet. He shows that he has hunger, and is given broiled fish to eat. He opens their minds as he breaks open the Scriptures with them. He challenges them to proclaim repentance and forgiveness of sins. The disciples were witnesses. These are some of the proofs that Jesus offers, as Luke records for us.

The Lord is risen indeed, Hallelujah!

It is April, and amid the new signs of spring, this anthem echoes in our liturgies, reminding us of the mystery and blessing of resurrection.

Our Lenten fast is over; the journey through Holy Week has led us to the cross, through the tomb, to the possibility of new life in Christ Jesus.

This month, amid these festive Easter Celebrations, we are called once again to examine our lives, our ministry, and our service to the world, in light of the resurrection. To this end, I will be hosting Six Sessions on Sundays in April, May and June, entitled Café  Conversations

Session I – Sunday, May 3 9:30 – 10:30 am Baptism – Welcome to the family

Session II – Sunday, May 10 9:30 – 10:30 am The Bible – Learning and growing within our story

Session III – Sunday, May 31 9:30 – 10:30 am Eucharist – Dying and Rising in Jesus

Session IV – Sunday, June 7 9:30 – 10:30 am Prayer – Listening to God’s Cry/Hearing Humanity’s Pain

Session V – Sunday, June 14 9:30 – 10:30 am This Home of Ours – Liturgical Space at the Ascension

Session VI – Sunday, June 21 9:30 – 10:30 am This World  is God’s – Our Service to the World

 

Come join our successful Ascension Café each of these Sundays, and explore new learning and new directions for our parish!

God Bless,

David
