Let me begin with a question for you:
Which are you, one of those who sees the world, and likes to order your own part of life
in simple contrasts; right/wrong, good/bad, in/out, yes/no, highway or byway….?
Or, are you more likely to see the world, and your own living of it as “It’s complicated..”?

I know that for me, whenever I hear the opening verse of this text, “I AM the True Vine,
and God, my Father is the Vineyard Keeper” I am immediately transported sensually to the vineyards of Alsace!
The trouble with taking the Sunday after Easter off, as I’ve done more often than not, is that I often feel like I’m playing catch up when I step back to the lectern, or in this year, hop back on the kitchen stool.
