May 19, 2019: Fifth Sunday of Easter
Melinda Brown Donovan preaches for the Fifth Sunday of Easter, offering a reflection on discipleship: "As receivers of that redemptive love, we are called to embody the love of Christ: to become a community of healing mercy, kindness, inclusion, compassion, and forgiveness."
