Dear Friends,

Tomorrow is the third Sunday in Easter, and we continue exploring some of the resurrection appearance of Jesus. This week we’ll look at Luke 24, the story of the disciples walking along the Road to Emmaus.

The risen Jesus appeared with them and walked and talked with them on their journey, but they didn’t know who he was.

More than 2000 years later we continue looking for the same thing—someone to come in power, to challenge our enemies and address the grievances we feel, someone to see the world like we do.
