Looking towards Sunday -Thursday, May 4, 2023

“I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me”

Since this is the most controversial and probably most poorly understood part of the passage, Mother Cathy will focus ion this during the Sunday homily.
But think about it between now and then. How have you understood this? Do you find it comforting or unsettling? Have you heard it as a threat? Does it make you worry about your friends who are not Christians? What about people who have never heard of Jesus? What do you think the disciples who heard this understood it to mean? What does it mean to “come to the Father?” And what does “through me” mean to you?

Coming up
Sunday, May 7, 2023 in honor of The Rev. Larry and Ruth Lewis
Please bring whatever you’d like to share – but remember that Ruth needs gluten-free options!
We are especially looking for soups and salads, since both CAN be made gluten free pretty easily!
But bring whatever you think would be a good thing to share. We will mark everything gluten free or not gluten free…

For next Sunday – John 14:1-14
Jesus said, “Do not let your hearts be troubled. Believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father’s house there are many dwelling places. If it were not so, would I have told you that I go to prepare a place for you? And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and I will take you to myself, so that where I am, there you may be also. And you know the way to the place where I am going.” Thomas said to him, “Lord, we do not know where you are going. How can we know the way?” Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. If you know me, you will know my Father also. From now on you do know him and have seen him”.
