Today is a communion Sunday. Before joining the worship service, you are invited to assemble what you will eat and what you will drink. It can be bread and grape juice or wine or something as simple as a cracker or rice cake and water for use in our worship.
Several times in John’s Gospel, Jesus tells his followers just who he is.
As we heard last Sunday, he does this with images, with parables.
He tells them: “I am the Bread of Life.”
He tells them: “I am the Good Shepherd.”
As he shares a final meal with his followers, as he prays for them and tells them what life might be like once he has departed from them, Jesus tells them one final time who he is.
And this time he also tells his followers—in all ages—who we are as well.
“I am the vine, you are the branches,” Jesus says.
