 The Season of Easter @ UCUC
Throughout the season we’ve been building our worship space – rock by rock – in the same way that the church is built person by person. It’s not too late to bring a rock to decorate our worship space as we build our church together!

Scripture Reading

John 14:15-21

 

 Reflection:
In this week’s focus scripture Jesus introduces the idea of the “Holy Spirit” – a force that will accompany them on their faith journeys when Jesus is no longer with them. Think back to the beginning of the Easter season. Jesus’ disciples are sad and afraid because their teacher and friend is dead, his body missing. When have you been disheartened and fearful about the future? The indwelling of the Spirit continues to gather the disciples and is the way that God intended for Jesus’ disciples – and us today – to remain connected as a faith community.

 

This Week:
write a note (no email – pen to paper!) to someone in your church community whom you haven’t seen in a while. Check in and let them know that you are thinking of them.
