Easter Lilies, Kuroda Seiki

Second Sunday of Easter (B)

Call to Worship [Based on Matthew 18:20]

We gather, trusting Jesus, who said
“where two or three are gathered in my name
I am there among them.”
We gather to worship God,
in whose gracious presence we rejoice.
We gather in the power of the Holy Spirit,
who transforms death into life abundant.
Let us worship God!

Now the whole group of those who believed were of one heart and soul, and no one claimed private ownership of any possessions, but everything they owned was held in common. With great power the apostles gave their testimony to the resurrection of the Lord Jesus, and great grace was upon them all. There was not a needy person among them, for as many as owned lands or houses sold them and brought the proceeds of what was sold. They laid it at the apostles’ feet, and it was distributed to each as any had need.

Acts 4:32-35
