This week’s short passage from Acts gives a snapshot of the Christian community in Jerusalem, including a list of essential practices.
Easter | Fourth Sunday of Easter (Year A)
Acts 2:42-47; Psalm 23; 1 Peter 2:19-25; John 10:1-10
Churches need to take time to discern their particular Christian formation mission. Only then can they choose curricular resources to support this.
This Sunday of words and songs about sheep and shepherds has always challenged me. For most of my preaching life I’ve been in or near a city. Now I live in New York City, where as far as I know even the Sheep Meadow in Central Park has no sheep. Yet here is an enduring image from Jesus, an image captured perhaps millions of times in our art, our songs, our stories.
