Easter 5

May 2, 2021

Jesus declares that God is the gardener; he is the vine; we are the branches.  This is great and beautiful metaphorical way of thinking about us and God.

However, God is the kind of gardener who prunes!  Pastor Rob reflects on how this past year has been a year of pruning, both as individuals and as a church.

This is not a bad thing though, as God works in our lives to remove all in us that does not bear fruit and that separates us from God.

Ultimately this reality of pruning leads to some reflection on who we are — truly, whose we are.
