Join us for worship . . .
The first reading for the Third Sunday of Easter, Acts 2:14a, 36-41, consists of the final section of Peter’s Pentecost sermon, in which he urges his hearers to repent, be baptized, and receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.
The image of exile is used in 1 Peter 1:17-23 to help the readers of this letter understand that Christians are strangers in a strange land. Because they belong to God, their focus, faith, and hope are no longer on such things as silver and gold.
The Gospel lesson, Luke 24:13-35, records the familiar episode of Jesus’ encounter with two individuals en route to Emmaus. Here we see faith in the risen Lord arising from nothing: they first encounter Jesus as one unknown, but eventually their hearts are opened to the true reality of his New Being.
Pastor Jeffrey Kolbo provides the sermon.
