April 28, 2024 – Fourth Sunday after Easter

Welcomed into God's Presence

In the bustling world around us, we often find comfort in belonging to a community, a place where we feel a sense of connection. Yet we are reminded today that our truest belonging lies not in earthly ties, but in the spiritual household of God. Today's Epistle speaks of our former alienation from God. But through Christ Jesus, the cornerstone, we are brought near, reconciled to the Father, and welcomed into His holy temple. We gather as part of this blessed family to worship the King who has brought us home and find strength and comfort in His presence.
