Easter Sunday has passed and we enjoyed a wonderful Youth-Led Worship Service here at Bethania last week. This week we look beyond Easter toward the coming reality of being present with Jesus as Spirit. The text for this week reminds us of the Emmaus Road encounter and Jesus' appearance to the disciples in Jerusalem. In all the commotion surrounding the Death and Resurrection of our Lord, the disciples and we, too forget that Jesus is with us all the time.
He was there with the disciples as they walked along a dusty road, even though their eyes could not see Jesus until the Spirit opened their minds. He showed the disciples his hands and feet and ate with them...nothing like a Fish Sandwich to get the “Gang” going. And Jesus reminds them to wait in Jerusalem until the Spirit comes upon them...some forty days in the making! But the reality for us today is that Jesus walks with us in every dusty encounter or meal time blessing: “Come Lord Jesus, Our Guest to be...”
We want to invite you to be our guest this week at Bethania Moravian Church. We have a great choir, excellent hand bells, young singers, enthusiastic youth and vibrant children...plus a Cruise In this week and some family “get-together's” in the coming months. We really believe that Jesus is here to welcome you each week and hope that you join us for our weekly activities listed on the web-site. We are on the web too on our Provincial Site – http://www.moravian.org/
