God meets us where we are -- but does not leave us there

April 26, 2019

God meets us where we are. But -- thankfully! -- God does not leave us there. That first Easter Sunday, two of Jesus'  followers are on the road to Emmaus (read the story here), walking and talking about everything they'd experienced.  The resurrected Jesus himself mysteriously appears, and starts walking alongside them. When Jesus asks what they're talking about, they stand still, their faces downcast -- looking sad.  When we stand still, or are downcast, what happens?  God comes alongside. God listens to us tell our story.  God reveals God's self to us and helps us understand our story in the light of Scripture.  And God reveals God's own self to us in the disciples fellowship, the prayers, and the breaking of the bread.  See you Sunday,
