Weekly resources to enrich worship and learning – wherever you are

Preparing for 22 - 28 May 2022

Acts 16.9-15; Psalm 67; Revelation 21.10,21.22-22.5; John 5.1-9RCL Easter 6 Year C

All shall be well

This is John’s vision of hope and healing for the world. He sees God and Jesus form the Temple in the new Jerusalem, and they are the light of the world. John sees the water of life flowing clear and bright like crystal, and the tree of life bearing fruit that will bring healing to all nations. Together the tree, water and light give life to all things – a hopeful picture of the future for all humanity and all God’s creation.

Written for Christians facing extreme persecution, the powerful imagery encouraged them to hang on to the promise that, in the end, light will triumph over darkness, hope over despair, and all people, nations – and indeed all of creation – will be healed and made whole: truly ‘All shall be well’. While this may seem far removed from our own world, there is much in our lives and in the world where God’s hope and healing are needed. Today we explore how God might use us as agents of hope and healing for others.

This week we explore a vision of hope and healing.
