Jesus said, “Do not let your hearts be troubled. Believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father’s house there are many dwelling places. If it were not so, would I have told you that I go to prepare a place for you? And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and will take you to myself, so that where I am, there you may be also. And you know the way to the place where I am going.” Thomas said to him, “Lord, we do not know where you are going. How can we know the way?” Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. If you know me, you will know my Father also. From now on you do know him and have seen him.” –John 14.1-7
- What is more important, to be right in what you believe, or to understand some else’s perspective?
- What legacies have you inherited from people now dead or no longer known to you?
- What legacy have you generated?
- Who would you like to support in becoming less fearful? How might you help with this task?
A legacy is something we leave behind in the world, for good or ill. Jesus leaves us knowing where he’s going, to be with God. The legacy he leaves us is a place with God too whom we’re invited to know intimately, even if sometimes uncertain. Join us Sunday at 6 pm on Zoom (bit.ly/TCZoom) to be with God and with one another as we hear about the importance of legacies, the legacy Jesus leaves us, and the legacy we can make for others. (Download Bulletin) I hope to see you Sunday night.
