Living Worship Series: LISTEN TO ME
Fourth Sunday in Easter - May 12, 2019
Planning for this Series
Historically, Lent was used as a season of preparation and discipleship for interested Christians, and they would be baptized at the Easter vigil service. The season after Easter, then, was focused on teaching Christian doctrine. Our “Living” and “Loving” series come out of this historical understanding of the Easter season. They both follow the gospel texts in John, where Jesus is trying to teach the disciples how to live as his followers. You can ask the same questions in your worship: “What does it mean to live as a follower of Christ? What does it mean to believe in Jesus?”
This is the final week of the “Living” series, so be sure to let your congregation knows where you are headed next week. Our next series is “Loving,” and it ends on the day of Pentecost, when we as disciples are empowered by the Holy Spirit and sent forth. After Pentecost will begin a new season of Ordinary Time.
