Monday In the Second Week of Easter

Text: John 14:1-17

Prayer Pointers: For grace during life’s journey

We continue in our second week of Easter celebrations, for the Easter season is a week of weeks—7x7, a sign of perfection, or maybe better, completion. Under God’s watchful care, all things find their right ending. They are made complete.

The promise of the “many rooms” in the Father’s house are an echo of this idea. In a world where many were transients, where whole peoples stayed on the move, where houses themselves might be dismantled and rebuilt, where Jesus and his own disciple were constantly on the road, this image of life with the Father as a place of permanence and stability would be very appealing. In God, the journey of life finds its appropriate and correct ending, and the resurrection is the sign of the Father’s good will toward us.

Mission Statement: We are called to Welcome Everyone to Walk the Way of GRACE, and walk in that way in our individual lives, in our shared life in our various communities, in our common life with our neighbors, and even to the world at large as God sends us. The Way of Grace is to: GROW with Jesus, REJOICE in God, ANSWER with hope, CARE for the neighbor, and EMBRACE community.

Vision Statement: God has a plan FOR OUR LIVES, and so we teach how to walk in the path of Jesus Christ; FOR OUR NEIGHBORHOODS, and so we work to build healthy and strong communities; FOR OUR CITY, and so we share life with our neighbors in Walltown, Trinity Park, Duke, and the Triangle; and FOR OUR WORLD, and so we go with Good News.

Core Values: Because God loves us first, we value worship rooted in Scripture and Sacraments, service to all people, and being a welcoming community that loves and forgives one another.
