Today there’s no passage from John, no comment and no video. Instead here’s a question:
What did you think of the videos?
I asked this question at the start of the last three videos, but amazingly (!), have yet to have any comments. So what did you think? Were they helpful? Did they help you engage with the bible passage of the day? Did they make you think? Did they challenge you? And, most importantly, did they help you live life differently?
Each video too about an hour to design, create and do the techie stuff to get them to you, that’s about 40 hours of work over the summer. As I look to the future, maybe Advent, maybe Lent, or maybe next summer, it would be really helpful to know if this investment of time is worthwhile. If I hear nothing I will take that as a NO – so if you want to see more then plead comment.
You can respond on my website, the church website, on Facebook, or by replying if you receive my blog posts by email. I look forward to the deluge of responses!
Feed my lambs. Tend my sheep. Feed my sheep. Jesus speaks these words to Peter who denied him three times. Since God is willing to use Peter who denies Jesus, how might God’s work be carried out using your hands?
Jesus’ body is taken and prepared for burial. Both Joseph of Arimathea and Nicodemus were important Jewish leaders. Why do you think they took it upon themselves to arrange for the burial of Jesus’ body?
Jesus is handed over to be crucified. Isiah 53:5 says “But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was on him, and by his wounds we are healed.” How has the suffering of Jesus brought peace and healing to you?
