Sunday After Ascension – Church Back Home- June 1, 2014

The Epistle and Gospel for this Sunday give us some challenges that many people today seem to try to avoid. If you wonder, check your newspaper. At the time the Epistle was written, people thought that the end was coming perhaps in a matter of days, but we also know that Jesus said that only The Father knows. In the meantime, the Epistle tells us what we need to do in order to be ready, and even why. But is that happening?

In the Gospel reading, assurances of what is to come. The Comforter will bring truth, but that will cause them to be rejected by the many who seem to not want the real truth.

They tie together in a way that is highly relevant for our time.
