“The Beloved Disciple”


My message for this week centers around the mysterious “Beloved Disciple” in the Gospel of John. I take it that this character represents every one of us. Let us be embraced by God-in-Christ at the depth of our being. What kind of love claims us?  Love that gets its hands dirty, gets involved, reaches out inclusively and experiences the essence of God. —Pastor Dale
