Passage: Luke 24:44-53
Duration: 17 mins 15 secs
The Feast of the Ascension is one of the great puzzles of popular Christianity. Consider that it is one of the chief festivals of the church calendar, gets mentioned in all the creeds, and yet most people when asked to name feasts of the church year would likely mention Ash Wednesday or St. Patrick's day before thinking of Ascension.

Passage: John 15:9-17
Duration: 17 mins 6 secs
In John 15:9-17 Jesus gives his disciples a new commandment. They are to love one another as he has loved them. This Sunday Fr. Ed will explain how Anglicanism reflects and relies upon the New Commandment more so than other denominations. This is not to say that the Anglican Way is superior to other Christian Denominations, but rather that Anglicanism's charisms and crisis's rest on our fulfillment of or failure to fulfill Jesus' New Commandment.

Passage: John 15:1-8
Duration: 15 mins 1 sec
This Sunday's Gospel is John 15:1-8 and contains another "I Am" statement. Like "I am The Good Shepherd" from last week, this week's "I am The True Vine" reveals to us an important truth about our relationship with Jesus, the point of this relationship, and the price he pays for it. Hint: Jesus gets pruned and God is not radically inclusive. God is love, and that is far more wonderful and terrifying

Passage: John 10:11-18
Duration: 15 mins 23 secs
Sheep without Shepherds have much to worry about when wolves come. Jesus is our Good Shepherd and the more we live into this truth the less we have to worry about. Great athlete's achieve a state of ready relaxation that allows them to excel in stress filled moments. Christians can deal with the wolves without fear or anxiety because Jesus is our Good Shepherd. This Sunday we will reflect on the amazing ways we experience Jesus as our Good Shepherd.

Passage: Luke 24:36-48
Duration: 15 mins 33 secs
This week’s gospel is about the reality of the resurrection, the compassion of a Savior to provide tangible evidence for our finite human minds, and a call to mission. Have we let Christ open our minds? Are we ready to proclaim repentance and forgiveness in His name to all nations?

The Resurrection was a pretty dramatic event. But life went on, and generations have come and gone since. So the question is, "So what?" What difference does it make to you today? In fact, is it even that important to believe that it actually happened at all? The truth is that it makes all of the difference in the world.
