Christ our Companion

Speakers:Carol Cavin-Dillon
Topics:Children's moment, Sermon, Sunday service

The text for today is the Emmaus Road story, with two friends walking along, talking about their grief for the loss of Jesus, then Jesus, whom they do not recognize, joins them.  We can identify with these friends in our own time of loss.  Among the most poignant of words is their confession, “We had hoped . . .”  But in this experience, the risen Christ invites them to tell about their sorrows, and then he turns their loss into new and ultimate hope.  The story is a metaphor for discipleship.   (NOTE: We usually post the 11 o’clock service, but with the COVID-19 threat we are having only the 8:45 service today, and that is the service we are posting.  NOTE:  Although the video begins with the Children’s Moment, once it starts you can scroll back to the beginning of the service if you want.  The video of the entire service is available to watch.)
