Sarah Condon: Our Low Meets His High

Luke 24:13-25

3rd Sunday of Easter - Year A

April 30, 2017

The Rev. Sarah Condon (TEC)

 

This Gospel lesson from St. Luke can feel like a failed trial run for Christian witness. The disciples encounter Undercover Jesus on the road to Emmaus. And when he asks them what they are discussing, they tell Jesus about himself. Only, it's not exactly the testimony our Risen Lord was hoping for.

The Rev. Dr. Brett Younger (CBF)

ON Scripture: Living as Sojourners in a Strange Land (1 Peter 1:17-23) By Onleilove Alston

ON Scripture: The Bible

In our Scripture passage, Peter encourages us to live our time here as sojourners with reverent fear, remembering the sacrifice that was made for us. What does it mean to be a sojourner? It means that you are temporarily traveling through a place and as people of faith we must remember that we are temporary residents of our respective countries because we are permanent residents of the Kingdom of God.

Carl McColman: Is it possible to be a “Do It Yourself” Christian Mystic?

Carl McColman (other)

Nearly all Christian mystics maintain that an essential characteristic of Christian mysticism is participation in the Body of Christ, which is to say, in the Christian community of faith. In other words, to be a Christian mystic, it is as important to be a follower of Christ as it is to be a mystic. And to be a follower of Christ means to express spirituality in a communal way.

Bishop Elizabeth Eaton: Falling and Not Afraid

Bishop Elizabeth Eaton (ELCA)

Not long ago a young reporter contacted me wanting to talk about death. She had suddenly come to the realization that she would one day die. She wanted to know what happens to us when we die, was there life after death and what did Scripture say about heaven? These are meta-questions.

Emily C. Heath: I Was Provoked

The Rev. Emily Heath (UCC)

Have you ever heard someone say, 'I was provoked'? Sometimes you hear it as a defense after a fight: 'He provoked me!' The idea is that whatever response came next, it was somehow justified.
