We are still in the season known as Eastertide. The scripture, two of the hymns and the anthem all have an Easter theme. The gospel text from John 14 endeavors to calm the fears of the disciples at Christ’s anticipated departure. The tender care Jesus shows his disciples is similar to the tender care of a mother for her children. The sermon will be lifting up that theme in honor of Mother’s Day. Accompany your mother to church, you know she wants you to. See you Sunday!
