A Forward-Looking Faith

A Forward-Looking Faith

5/5/19: Easter 3
Scripture:  John 21:1-19

Central Idea: Events good and bad happen. They just happen. Resurrected living translates into a forward-looking faith – superseding our search for meaning at every turn.

Prayer: In the words of the Psalmist today, O God of resurrection, you turn mourning into dancing. You take off our sackcloth and clothe us with joy.

And in so doing, the lion of another winter finds a warming and welcoming lair in the fierce lamb of resurrection and spring. 

And so, as we enjoy … let us, this day, be enjoined by you. And so, as you stand beside us … let us, this day, stand beside you: wherever you may appear.
