What would it be like to walk along the road to Emmaus with Jesus' disciples on that Sunday that the strange and confusing news was coming in about his rising from the grave? We hope you will join us in worship and see. Rev. Bob Shaw brings an inspiring word today based upon Luke 24:12-35.
Our short worship time together, 30 minutes, includes prayer, scripture, singing, and listening to the word together with people in times and places all around the world. Our music today includes "Open the Eyes of My Heart, Lord," sung by Dean Phelps, and the soulful, "Know Him in the Breaking of the Bread," a duet by Dean Phelps and the late Audrey Borschel, recorded in 2011.
As we do every week, our time together includes a time of communion (breaking of the bread) where you may choose to participate, or simply meditate as we tell of Jesus' invitation to "do this in remembrance of me."
If you would like to share with us at the table that defies all boundaries of time, place, and structure, then we ask that you prepare a wafer, cracker, or bread and a drink. As we pray, we are praying that our blessing extends to where you are. If you are unable to eat or drink, you may want to use a symbolic gesture or mental symbol as you come together at this table of remembrance with us. (Scroll down for an Order of Worship)
We hope that as you join us for worship you will feel a blessing from beige part. Please tell friends, family, and others you know about our online church that is here with doors that are always open, walls as wide as the world, and always room at the table.
