John 13:31-35

There’s so much going on during today’s worship – baptisms, confirmation, Youth Sunday, Communion – to include a full sermon. All the same, I wanted to reflect on this passage from John that guides so many of us through all the different stages of life. The confirmation class, whose compiled statement of faith captures the spirit of this passage very well, voted on what poetic form the sermon should take. They chose a haiku:

Live the way of Christ:
Serving freely, loving all;
Be the glory of God
