Now on that same day, the first day of the week, two of the disciples were going to a village called Emmaus, about seven miles from Jerusalem, and talking with each other about all these things that had happened. Luke 24:13-14
On the evening following Jesus’ resurrection, there are lots of questions to be asked. The disciples have certainly been on a roller coaster of emotions since the arrival at Jerusalem—celebration, love, grief, and hopelessness at the crucifixion. But on this morning, a seed of hope—an idle tale that the tomb is empty. It seems quite natural that by the time evening comes, folks have questions.
In our journeys of faith this Easter, we may find ourselves in a time of celebration or grief, faith or doubt, hope or despair. Where ever we are, Easter still comes. The Risen Jesus does not bring to an end our questions and discussion, but instead, Jesus meets us again and again on our way.
We gather on Easter to celebrate Jesus’ resurrection, to celebrate as a community that continues to engage our faith through discussion and worship. We celebrate the tale told long ago: “The Lord is risen indeed.”
Join us this Sunday at 6 pm. Bring your faith, your doubts, and your questions, and meet the risen Jesus through song, scripture, bread and wine. Stay following the service for a wonderful feast prepared by our own Kenny Lewis! We hope to see you there!
