Sunday Sermon, The Rev. Michael Bird: “Choose Love, As Christ Loves Us”

May 12, 2024

Father Bird reminds us that we are in the world and are meant to be in the world. Ascension Day, which fell on the Thursday before Sunday’s sermon, tells the story of Jesus’s bodily ascension into heaven, where he brings earth and humanity to join with God. Father Bird urges us to resist the temptation to look up in search of Jesus’s ascension, and instead to accept the knowledge that the body of Christ is all around us. Namely in the great potential of God’s mission. Christ prays for us, intercedes for us, identifies with us, protects us, encourages us, cheers us, loves us, and hopes for us. Father Bird compels us to look around and choose love. Just as Christ loves us.
