In worship, the tone of the readings showed much of the “other side” of the Christian story: persecution, being placed on trial, having to make a defense (with reverence and gentleness), and the need for an advocate (Paraclete). Yet we heard the truth, that God continues to walk with us and guide us when we listen: to God, to our community, and to each other. Where are you asked to listen to another’s story and see where God is leading you?
I invite your comments,
Readings: Acts 17:22-31; Psalm 66:7-18; 1 Peter 3:13-22; John 14:15-21
