Delivered at Christ Episcopal Church, Bluefield, WV on Easter VI, May 10, 2015.
Reflections on the calling of Jesus to his original disciples and (by inheritance) to us to be both his friend and friends with one another. This is a bigger challenge than it might at first appear, especially as one realizes that taking on this role requires us to give the Holy Spirit free (or at least freer) reign in our lives. For Episcopalians whose motto might be “all things decently and in good order,” this is not necessarily easy, but it is incredibly worthwhile.
Consider this in preparation for Pentecost.
