2nd Sunday of Easter: Apostles or Disciples?

The Reverend Dr. Johanna Wagner poses the question: Would you rather be an apostle or a disciple? Many people, the reverend guesses, would rather be a disciple. Disciples have much less of a responsibility to go out into the world and really do what Jesus did. Jesus makes this decision for us: “So the Father has sent me, so I send you.”

The Reverend goes on to offer 4 steps to being an Apostle:

Remember that this mission is a good one. Ask yourself: Is this something Jesus did during his ministry? If so, consider yourself “sent” to do this thing.Set some apostolic goals: “Today I will [insert task here] as someone sent to [do that thing] by Jesus.” Try to see your life and intentions as things you have been sent to do.Believe that Jesus has a purpose for you. Every day, Jesus is asking us “Do you love me?”

Celebrating diversity, working for justice, living with joy!
