I love the story of the two disciples walking on the Road to Emmaus weighed down by fears and anxieties and yet hoping against hope that the rumor was true of the Risen Lord. But in an unexpected moment, Jesus crossed their path and was walking with them as a stranger who shared words of hope and brought new insight to scripture and divine presence in what was once an ordinary meal. They later shared that experience with others saying, “Were not our hearts strangely warmed!”
This Sunday we will share a Special Emmaus Road Home Communion, and we invite you to set aside some bread and juice or wine as we worship online and invite the Risen Lord into our homes and families praying that our hearts would indeed be “strangely warmed” with new hope and that we may share this hope with others.
Friends, we are not on this journey alone, the Risen Lord is present with us and together we will get through this.
(verse of the week)
““Were not our hearts burning within us while he was talking to us on the road,” (Luke 24:32 NRSV)
(prayer of the week)
Lord, help me to feel your presence walk with me on this journey of life and may I feel my heart burning anew with your love and may I share that hope and love with others, amen.
(quote of the week)
We find everywhere in this world the traces of a revealed God and a hidden God; revealed enough to strengthen our faith, concealed enough to try our faith--Philip Schaff
