Hello dear friends, I am still blogging on the Rectory Wanderings blog for now, but I thought I would add a new Wordle for Sunday's Gospel reading.
The Gospel is from John 17:20-26 and I am preaching at All, Saints, Hampton on Sunday. One thing that strikes me is about the intimate nature of the love between Father and Son and that that intimate love is available to us and is a tangible characteristic of the missional God. More to come I am sure...
The reading is:
‘I ask not only on behalf of these, but also on behalf of those who will believe in me through their word, that they may all be one. As you, Father, are in me and I am in you, may they also be in us, so that the world may believe that you have sent me. The glory that you have given me I have given them, so that they may be one, as we are one, I in them and you in me, that they may become completely one, so that the world may know that you have sent me and have loved them even as you have loved me. Father, I desire that those also, whom you have given me, may be with me where I am, to see my glory, which you have given me because you loved me before the foundation of the world.
‘Righteous Father, the world does not know you, but I know you; and these know that you have sent me. I made your name known to them, and I will make it known, so that the love with which you have loved me may be in them, and I in them.
Here's the wordle...
