John 3:1-10; 19: 38-42
Lord Jesus Christ – provocative teacher of faith - pour out your compassion on
all who know they are stifled by the faith of others
all who are curious but not convinced by you
all who treasure their reputation before all else
all who visit the graves of their loved ones with only flowers and memories
Guide the people who bear your name into Easter paths of joy and strength which entice others to follow Christ and expand their own understanding of discipleship. Amen.
