Our scripture today is from John chapter 14 verses 1-3 and 27 from the Common English Bible.
1 "Don't be troubled. Trust in God. Trust also in me. 2 My Father's house has room to spare. If that weren't the case, would I have told you that I'm going to prepare a place for you? 3 When I go to prepare a place for you, I will return and take you to be with me so that where I am you will be too.
27 “Peace I leave with you. My peace I give you. I give to you not as the world gives. Don't be troubled or afraid.
Leader: This is the word of God for a people of God.
All: Thanks be to God.
