7th Sunday of Easter

Posted on Updated on

Originally delivered on May 31, 1992

Readings: Acts of the Apostles 7: 55-60; Revelation 22: 12-14, and John 17: 20-26

God is love.  Our loving, parental God sent His Son, Jesus, to all the people of the earth to lead them back to His Father’s house to celebrate together forever.  So simple, yet our challenge is to find its meaning for us in our hectic, challenging lives.  Stephen understood this message and gives witness of this understanding to others.  We, as Christians, are called to be like Stephen, to love one another as our God loves us.  Like Stephen, our witness may cost us our lives, but we are called to give witness by showing our passion for people, our brothers and sisters, especially those we might call our enemies.
