Christ is Risen!…He is Risen Indeed!
I hope you enjoyed last week’s worship led by Bishop Hazelwood. We continue our way of “virtually” worshiping until we can all be in the sanctuary. Feedback is always appreciated.
Introduction for the Day
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.

O God, your Son makes himself known to all his disciples in the breaking of bread. Open the eyes of our faith, that we may see him in his redeeming work, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever.

Christ is risen, just as he said. Go in peace, share the good news. Alleluia! Thanks be to God. Alleluia!
