This week, Pastor Andrea Fluegel and Barb Zima discuss Jesus' words, "I am the door/gate." What does this mean and what does it mean that the sheep hear the shepherd's voice? How do you hear the voice of Jesus in your life? Can anybody go through the gate? This scripture reading is full of hope and love. The present tense verbs tell us that Jesus' love and intimate knowledge of all people is what normally happens everyday. The love of Jesus is for you, every day!
"Heart of the Matter" is a seven-week series concluding with the Festival Day of Pentecost. Easter is not just a day. It is a whole season of time when we remember and celebrate that the Spirit of Jesus lives on in each of us. So over the next few weeks, we are worshiping and praising God as the early disciples (later apostles) did, in their homes with glad and generous hearts, breaking bread, and having the goodwill of all people. It is in this way, that we are connected. We are connected through the love and grace of Jesus. Worship script by Marcia McFee and Worship Design Studio.
