The lectionary passages for today are about how we are known and how we know God. How we are forgiven and the fact of being forgiven as part of our identity. We also have the foretelling of Easter and Jesus’ death allowing for new life. And the analogy of plants dying and providing seeds that create new life. Jesus explains that this is how new life happens.
I’m going to talk through the lectionary passages this morning and then ask you all if you’re willing to share about particular times in your life, or the life of the community, or someone close to you, when something had to be given up, or die, to allow for new life to happen. So keep that in mind as I go through the scriptures.
