Holy Help for Needed Change – Fourth Sunday after Easter – May 15, 2022

We welcome Rev. Paul Tsuchido Shew, as our preacher at West Tokyo Union’s 10:00 am online service.

Rev. Shew’s sermon this Sunday will examine how the Holy Spirit helps us to change for the better. The scripture readings referenced for this message are:

Psalm 148 – “Praise the Lord from the heavens; praise him in the heights above. Praise him, all his angels; praise him, all his heavenly hosts…”


Acts 11:1-18 – “15 “As I began to speak, the Holy Spirit came on them as he had come on us at the beginning. 16 Then I remembered what the Lord had said: ‘John baptized with water, but you will be baptized with the Holy Spirit.’ 17 So if God gave them the same gift he gave us who believed in the Lord Jesus Christ, who was I to think that I could stand in God’s way?”


John 13:31-35 – “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. 35 By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.”

John 13:34

Hymns:  89: Joyful, Joyful, We Adore Thee — 548: In Christ There Is No East or West — 384:Love Divine, All Loves Excelling
