In today’s video we enjoy returning to Easter Alleluias, something for the kids, scripture, an Easter Message, prayers and music.

Walking the Road to Emmaus

Jesus shows up “in the midst of it all”

Today’s gospel begins with two disciples walking to Emmaus, overcome with sadness, loss, and disappointment. They had hoped Jesus, who was crucified, would be the one to redeem Israel! Yet the risen Christ walks with them and then opens their eyes in the breaking of the bread. Each Sunday our hearts burn within us as the scriptures are proclaimed and Christ appears to us as bread is broken and wine is poured. The story of Emmaus becomes the pattern of our worship each Lord’s day.
