"Love Begets Love"

6 Easter.B.21
John 15:9-17
The Rev. Melanie McCarley

Imagine the scene. The place is the upper room; and the time is that of the Last Supper. Jesus speaks to his disciples, and says: “As the Father has loved me, so I have loved you; abide in my love…this is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you. No one has greater love than this, to lay down one’s life for one’s friends. You are my friends if you do what I command you.”
