17 Apr Audio Series: The Road to Emmaus
Posted at 12:19h in Common Ground, Music and Audio, Staff Reflections
For two of Jesus’s disciples, walking from Jerusalem to Emmaus in the days after Jesus’s crucifixion, these were uncertain and ambiguous times. How were they to make sense of the crucifixion, the death of the one they thought to be the Messiah, and what were they to make of the reports that Jesus had risen from the grave?
In this talk, originally given during the 11:00am service at St Paul’s Symonds Street, Nathan McLellan explores the similarities between these first-century disciples and our lives today, with our own uncertainties, ambiguities, and suffering. Nathan reminds us that we too have an invitation to trust that God is at work in our lives.
