May 10, 2019: Fourth Sunday of Easter
Preaching for the Fourth Sunday of Easter, Colleen Gibson, SSJ offers a reflection on becoming God's people, God's flock, in a divided world:
"As the psalmist sings out: “We are God’s people, the sheep of his flock.” God knows us and loves us, even when we don’t hear so well. At a moment in our church and our world when people have stopped listening to one another or are selectively listening to the voices they agree with, we must remember- no one is greater than the others- we are all sheep."
Sister Colleen Gibson is a Sister of Saint Joseph who currently serves as the coordinator of services at the Sisters of Saint Joseph Neighborhood Center in Camden, New Jersey, which provides opportunities for connection, enrichment, and empowerment with and among neighbors and neighboring communities in Camden and the surrounding areas.
