Welcome to online worship at Richfield Lutheran Church! Today’s theme is from the Gospel of John 17:1-11. In these days between Ascension Thursday and Pentecost Sunday, we gather with the disciples in the upper room, waiting for the Spirit to transform the church around the world. In today’s gospel, Jesus prays for his followers and for their mission in his name. Amid religious, social, and economic divisions, we seek the unity that Jesus had with his Father. Made one in baptism, we go forth to live our faith in the world, eager for the unity that God intends for the whole human family.
