Feed and Tend

Sometimes we overcomplicate what it means to be a disciple. Today we hear a conversation between Peter and Jesus. Peter proclaims his love for Jesus three times and Jesus calls Peter to act out that love by feeding and tending Christ's sheep. As the people of God we are called and committed to this work of being the helpers, of showing up in love to feed and tend exactly because that is who God created us to be in the world. What does it look like to be a disciple in these days?

From Series: "Now What?"

The tomb is empty, he is risen. But those who know and love Jesus are still primarily scared and confused. And they’re wondering, “now what?” The world has turned upside down, life has conquered death and yet there is still so much that suggests otherwise. For a community of faith like ours, in a time such as this, we can find ourselves asking the same thing, “now what?” How do we respond in a time of uncertainty? Which direction should we go? What plans should we make? If we are to have confidence in God, why do so many questions remain? For the eight weeks after Easter, we leave the Narrative Lectionary behind and consider a series of Gospel texts that recount how a risen Jesus restores the community of believers to become the church for tomorrow.
