Peter Christ - April 26, 2020

The Most Jesus Thing

This Sunday’s familiar story of the road to Emmaus comes from Luke’s gospel. While the dramatic encounter with a risen Christ occurs while walking the road, it’s at the table where Jesus is truly recognized. How can the church be more like a table, set with a meal for family and friends and offering glimpses of the divine?

Scripture References: Luke 24:13-35

From Series: "Now What?"

The tomb is empty, he is risen. But those who know and love Jesus are still primarily scared and confused. And they’re wondering, “now what?” The world has turned upside down, life has conquered death and yet there is still so much that suggests otherwise. For a community of faith like ours, in a time such as this, we can find ourselves asking the same thing, “now what?” How do we respond in a time of uncertainty? Which direction should we go? What plans should we make? If we are to have confidence in God, why do so many questions remain? For the eight weeks after Easter, we leave the Narrative Lectionary behind and consider a series of Gospel texts that recount how a risen Jesus restores the community of believers to become the church for tomorrow.
