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

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.

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.
