Sixth Sunday of Easter – B

Sixth Sunday of Easter – B

Years B
Acts 10:44-48
Psalm 98
1 John 5:1-6
John 15:9-17


While Peter spoke - something beyond words came to folks. There was an active crossing of boundaries - words restricting us from one another were left behind. Acknowledgment of our commonness was made. Whenever such boundaries between people are reduced it is a time to confirm such changes.

Baptism is an act of affirmation. Re-membering a Baptism re-minds us of our connection beyond tribal connection re-binding us to a common journey expressed in a multitude of keys and tempos - a seeming babble of tongues only understood in acting out a movement from servant to friend (others and ourselves).

These moments always come as a surprise, while something else is going on, and as a shift in expected outcome. Here we move from a specific witness to a universal one, from a known God to an unknown.

finally

sing a new song
help G*D remember!
woe
now

sing a new song
past the past
beyond tomorrow
sing
