Remembrance (The Communion Song) Questions to consider as you read and as you reflect on the sermon: Read Psalms 80:8-18 and Isaiah 5:1-7. How do these passages shed light on what Jesus is saying about himself in John 15:1-8? How do you remain in him? What does this look like in practice for you? When have you felt like you were on the receiving end of God’s pruning knife?
