Gospel of John
This Sunday and in the months to come, we will examine the Gospel of John. The gospel will be split into multiple parts beginning with the power of both word and light. Throughout the series we will go, at least a bit, to Hollywood and the lights, the cameras, and particularly the action. It is a truly remarkable story that has the potential to be a feature film.
On Sunday I’ll introduce two of the key players that begin the Gospel of John. One is nicknamed, “Word” and the other…well he’s just angry and strange. Already sounds a bit like a Hollywood film. As we move through the year, there will be love stories, friendships, betrayals, violence, wonderment, miracles that Spielberg would have trouble putting on screen, and a surprise ending. As we move through each piece, we will explore what this story means for us today, and there is much here that can teach us about our roles in the world.
But for now we need to get through the introduction. It sets the table for what’s coming. So to prepare simply read the first five verses of the opening chapter of the Gospel of John. I look forward to seeing you on Sunday as we begin “A Year in the Light.”
