Goodbyes can be extremely difficult. This is certainly true in the case of Jesus and his final hours with his disciples. Here, in the small upper room of a house somewhere outside of Jerusalem, Jesus informs his friends that he will soon have to leave them. However, at the same time, he also adds, "I will not leave you orphaned." Indeed, he promises to give them his eternal presence through the power of the Holy Spirit. In today's sermon, Coralie will elaborate on precisely what this means for us, the people of Christ's church.
