For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith – and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God – not by works, so that no one can boast. For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.’ (Ephesians 2:8-10).
For this Fourth Sunday of Easter this year, we look to Jesus, our Good Shepherd, recalling his teaching about caring and courageous leadership in John 10:11-18. And we also draw inspiration from Psalm 23, as well as the testimony to the risen Christ and the healing power of love that Peter boldly gave in the face of critical and dismissive leaders (Acts 4:5-12). What examples to us of a better way!
We do hope you can join us online for worship. May the Lord bless and protect you!
