Greetings, People of the Journey –
Yes, indeed, it is May. The trees have leafed out, flowers are blooming, and antihistamines are de requérir. Soon, June will be bustin’ out all over, and my white bucks will come out of the closet for the season.
We continue on our journey of Eastertide to Pentecost. We celebrate AAPI Heritage Month. This Sunday is also Mother’s Day, a celebration of those who have been the mother figures in our lives, not bound by gender or genetics. We all have the capacity to be nurturing and life giving.
Last week we heard Jesus’ plea to feed his lambs, to give them care. This week we further examine the Gospel of John and Jesus’ claiming his fold, those who recognize his voice and follow him. Softly and tenderly, Jesus is calling. Do you hear him?
I pray that you will join us in person or on Zoom at 10 am Sunday.
Rev. Michael Cronin
