Rev Dr Greg Elsdon
Easter 6 – In this scripture passage, the followers of Jesus are struggling with the idea that he may not be with them for much longer – what will happen to them when they are left without him? Jesus says that he will not leave them abandoned, but will be sending another advocate, the Spirit of Truth, to walk with them, strengthen them and comfort them. God draws close to those who need refuge and comfort, and his presence is not subject to religious rules and rituals. While Paul was in Athens he spoke of "The God whom they worship but do not know". God is at work in the most unexpected and surprising places, and when God seems absent, what's really absent is our awareness of God's presence.
John 14: 15-21; Acts 17: 22-31
