Gospel Reflection for April 21, 4th Sunday of Easter: Jesus refers to himself as a shepherd in Sunday’s gospel, describing his loving care for his followers. Jesus’ promise is that his love and protection will reach even beyond death. “Home” is about how love like Jesus’ can help us feel safe and protected, even when facing what we fear.
Key Lines: Settle down, it’ll all be clear/Don’t pay no mind to the demons/They fill you with fear/The trouble it might drag you down/If you get lost, you can always be found/Just know you’re not alone/’Cause I’m going to make this place your home
Questions: What does “home” mean to you? What makes you feel safe? Who in your community is not safe? What needs to be done to help them? Where do you hear Jesus’ voice in your life? Does following Jesus give you a sense of safety? Why or why not?
