    Supplication

    Supplication

    The 40-day season of Lenten “wilderness” is over and the 50-day season of Easter “wildness” has begun! The new life offered by Jesus was surprising, even to those who were his closest followers. He told them and showed them what he was all about many times, and yet they continued to be shocked by his grace-full presence and power. How can we embrace the joys and the challenges that come along with serving a Savior whose message of life, death and resurrection continues to surprise us today?

    Pastor Beth continues her sermon series with John 17:1-11 as Jesus surprises the disciples with his supplication. Verses 4 and 5 say “I have glorified you on earth by finishing the work you gave me to do. Now, Father, glorify me in your presence with the glory I shared with you before the world was created."
