We welcome guest preacher The Rev. Dr. Nate Frambach to the pulpit. This message was recorded on Sunday, May 1, 2022.

We retreat to the things we know when we are uncertain or when things turn upside down. In the reading from John’s Gospel, Peter and the disciples went fishing because that’s what they knew. Jesus meets them where they are and Jesus forgives Peter and gives the disciples what they need to go out into the world to share God’s love.

Later that day… Jesus shows up because relationships matter to God. Jesus’ visit to the apostles behind locked doors brings a gift of peace and the Holy Spirit. Jesus’ encounters post-resurrection are personal, intimate events where Jesus offers peace, the Holy Spirit, and a charge to spread the good news to others. We, too, are invited to be a part of this relationship with Jesus.
