In this episode, we discuss the readings for the seventh Sunday in Easter (Year C in the lectionary cycle): Acts 16:16-34; Psalm 97; Revelation 22:12-21; John 17:20-26. We also consider the Gospel and Epistle readings for Ascension Day: Luke 24:44-53 and Ephesians 1:15-23.
We consider Jesus's high priestly prayer for all believers, the closing verses of the New Testament and their free and glorious promise of a safe and secure new city, the way creation invites wonder and awe at the Lord's unparalleled glory, and the keep-you-up-all-night sequence of Paul & Silas' time in Philippi.
Our outro music is an original song by our friend Dcn. Jeremiah Webster, a poet and professor whose giftedness is rivaled by his humbleness. You can find his published works, including After So Many Fires, with a quick Google.
