Welcome to this video worship experience for the Fifth Sunday of Easter. On this day, we continue to proclaim the good news: “Alleluia! Christ is risen! Christ is risen indeed! Alleluia!” On this Sunday, Jesus proclaims to us that he is the vine. The image of the vine is how the risen Christ shares his life with us. Christ the vine and we the branches are alive in each other, in the mystery of mutual abiding described in the gospel of John. Baptism makes us a part of Christ’s living and life-giving self and makes us alive with Christ’s life. As the vine brings food to the branches, Christ feeds us at his table. We are sent out to bear fruit for the life of the world.
