Happy May Day!!! The beginning of a month that can bring new birth, new growth, new life - Spring. Prayers that your May will be filled with the knowledge of the presence of God and the assurance that Jesus’ love is "all over the world" (thanks to d365 and Elizabeth Cervasio for this insight about Jesus’ love).
And that would also be the descriptor for Jesus today - Love. The Love that is present in the breaking of the bread of Holy Communion, the meal Jesus gave as assurance of love and forgiveness. The Love that is present in the reaching out of others to care for the sick, the poor, the hungry, the oppressed. The Love that is present in the Word, the Holy scripture. The Love that is present in the ways that worshippers will hopefully bring to worship next Sunday that they observed in their own corners of the world! Jesus - the unconditional and overflowing Love!
