God Created Everyone and Everything Good

Fifth Sunday of Easter, Acts of the Apostles Lesson Plan
Scripture: Acts 11:1-18

Today we hear how Saint Peter was shown that all that God made was good, even people that are different from us. Sometimes it is easy to forget that everyone is good and we should respect them, especially when we do not agree with the other person. God desires for all people to know the love he has shown for us in Jesus.

I am the Vine, You are the Branches

Fifth Sunday of Easter, Year B
Scripture: John 15:1-8

We have work to do, but not as lone rangers. We are called to stay connected to the vine, faithfully and courageously reaching out, securely connected to the vine of life. We will probably experience some very painful pruning. Later, often much later, we will experience the fruit. Abiding in that vine, trusting in it, and accepting its confines, we will learn to want the appropriate things and be free to ask for them. The work we are given to do, we will be able to do joyfully to the glory of God.
