It took a year to read the Bible, then almost 9 months to read the Apocrypha. Now, I'm going to try to offer reflections on the Narrative Lectionary. But, I won't be posting daily--at least, for a while.

Fruit or Fruitless, A Reflection on John 15:6-8

Continuing the metaphor of the vine, Jesus has just said that those who abide in him will bear much fruit. He then points out what happens to branches that do not bear fruit.

He is reminding us of the futility of the church trying to make it without adhering to the life and commands of Christ.

United Methodists are in session at General Conference considering what is, what should be, and even whether there is the future of this part of the church. See General_Conference_2012 or reframing-call-to-action.html
