Liturgy that Matters – May 16, 2021 – John 17:6-19
Themes: Jesus prayers to the Parent as he prepares himself and his disciples for his death. This issue wrestles with what it means to understand Jesus as divine, praying to Divinity. It explores the heartbreak of loss in communities struggling and serving and living and loving together. And it invites reflection on what it means to be “of the world” and the structural consequences of those who twist this scripture to do harm through power and policy.
This week’s sermon commentary is by AnaYelsi Velasco-Sanchez.
