Sixth Sunday of Easter
Virtual Church – Online
Scriptures include: 1 Peter 3:13-22 and John 14:15-21
Rev. Dr. Libby Grammer will preach a sermon entitled, “The Shape of the Spirit”
In our Gospel lesson today, Jesus is letting his disciples know he leaves with them an advocate, the Spirit, to guide them after he leaves their physical presence. This Spirit isn’t one they will know simply by a feeling (though undoubtedly the Spirit can be felt at times). More than a feeling, though, the shape of the Spirit is an outline of the life, teachings, and actions of Jesus of Nazareth. What does it mean to embrace the Spirit after Jesus leaves? It means keeping Christ’s commandments, following his lead in our own actions and teachings.
