The disciples make a big splash and eat breakfast with the risen Jesus. Wading in the water (remembering baptism) and eating with Jesus (celebrating holy communion) is our weekly encounter with the risen Christ. Jesus asks us again and again: Do you love me? And Jesus invites us, again and again, to follow him, bringing the Easter life to others.
Readings: John 21:1–19, Acts 9:1–6
The gift of new life, of eternal life, is the gift of the risen Christ. It is the promise of Jesus. It was true for Dorcas in Joppa. It is true for us and for all the baptized: Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.
Readings: John 10:22–30, Acts 9:36–43
Easter initiates a new day. It anticipates a new heaven and a new earth. The risen Christ is making all things new. In the mystery of holy baptism God has made new people of us. Today Jesus invites us to see everyone in a new light—through the lens of love.
Readings: John 13:31–35, Acts 11:1–18
Visions abound in the readings for the sixth Sunday of Easter. Paul has a vision about what to do. John has a vision of what will be. Jesus provides visions of peace that surpasses human understanding and power beyond human imagination.
Readings: John 5:1–9, Acts 16:9–15
We hear Jesus’ high priestly prayer, a prayer he offered shortly before his death. Notice the petitions prayed for Christ’s own followers throughout history—to our day—and beyond. Jesus prays for us. In holy baptism we embrace the gift of life forever with all the saints
Readings: John 17:20–26, Acts 16:16–34
