The Diocesan Service Sunday 9th May: Sixth Sunday of Easter

Welcome to Church at Home on the sixth Sunday of Easter. We are delighted to have the Rt Revd Olivia Graham as our president today, with a reflection by the Ven Canon Stephen Pullin. A huge thanks to everyone from across the diocese who has contributed ideas, prayers and action – you have made this service possible.

Our gospel reading this week calls us to a fruitful love of the other, like Jesus does us – a love that’s in it for the long haul. The Jesus of the gospels lived at the edges of polite society. He was out in the wild, untamed places of the community, searching for the ones who didn’t ‘belong.’ The Jewish leaders of his day could not get their heads around such love – a love that not only frolics with lambs, but wrestles with wolves too.

As we worship, let us reflect on the costly love of the ‘other’ that we celebrate in Eastertide, calling to mind the love that flows from God through Jesus. Let us summon the courage to live it, as we participate in the abundance of that goodness in every moment of the day, now and always.
