“The Epidemic of Loneliness and the Spirit of Love"

May 14, 2023 • Rev. Katherine B. Harrington • John 14:15–21

Dr. Vivek Murthy, the United States surgeon general, has declared that as a country we are experiencing an epidemic of loneliness. This is a surprise to no one because we are all feeling it, and yet, we have a hard time connecting with others in our over-connected world. This, in turn, makes us feel even more lonely and alone. When Jesus gathered around the table at the Last Supper with the disciples, he shared with them what they needed to do when they felt alone. And it wasn't a suggestion, it was a command: love one another. Love one another, and I will send the Advocate to be with you--always. Join us for worship as we explore the guidance of Jesus in John 14:15-21.
