Fourth Sunday of Easter
April 26, 2015
For the Fourth Sunday of Easter, Ann was invited to preach at the Brecksville United Church of Christ. She used the gospel from the common lectionary (the Good Shepherd), but chose the first reading and the “Continuing Testament” (a UCC tradition) from other sources as noted.
The First Reading: Ephesians 2:4-10.
The Gospel: John 10:11-18
Continuing Testament: Eager to Love: The Alternative Way of Francis of Assisi, Richard Rohr, pp. 183-88.
What image comes to mind when we hear “the Good Shepherd”? Lots of us may see some sweet, Sunday school picture of meek and mild Jesus. It’s an image many like to share with children.
