Bulletin – 6th Sunday of Easter in an Almost Time of Safety

NO MASS IN PERSON THIS WEEK, MAY 9, 2021

Happy Mothers’ Day to all who have “mothered,” be it physically, emotionally, or spiritually!

Consensus from my, “taking your pulse” survey was that we wait a few more months before meeting again for liturgy in person. We will concentrate through the warmer months on some outdoor liturgies, beginning with an end of July celebration of our annual Mass on the Farm remembering our sister, Mary of Magdala, and all women for their rightful places within our Church.

Dear Friends, we are moving through the Easter Season, with “Alleluia” as our song and response to our great God’s never-ending love for each of us, especially in the gift of Jesus, our brother and friend.

Again, the readings speak of “love” – God first loving us and then, we, returning the love. Jesus speaks of this action as, “bearing fruit.”

May we each follow, to the best of our abilities–to bear much, loving “fruit” as Jesus, our brother did!

Peace and love,

Pastor Kathy

Dear Friends,

We have the rich terminology this week of the “vine and the branches” and Jesus’ request that we, “live in him, as he does in us.”

We continue in this Easter time of alleluias! Hearing that Saul spoke, “fearlessly” about Jesus in his new, converted state and from John that, our “love” can’t be merely, “in words,” but must show itself in “action.”

May the Spirit be with each of us in this endeavor!

Peace and love,

Pastor Kathy

Dear Friends,

Easter time continues and “Alleluia” is our song! The season of Lent takes this joyful response from us in order that we can perhaps go deeper into the mystery, aside from the joy, of our God-with-us—all that this entails.

This week’s Scriptures call us to respond in appropriate ways, in Jesus’ footsteps. .

Many blessings–Pastor Kathy

Dear Friends,

During this holiest of weeks, please know that each of you is very much in my prayers and on my heart and with the sincere hope of next year being able to be together, in person, for Holy Week Services.

Easter opens us up to the fullness of our Christian lives and calls each of us in new ways to carry on all the good that Jesus, our brother did while here. As he lived and loved, died, and rose–we too are called to the same.

May the alleluias ring out loud and clear!

Peace and love,

Pastor Kathy
