Sermon:           “Surprised by God’s Grace”

Theme:            As we release our assumptions and attachment to getting our way God’s grace is experienced in a new and more powerful relationship of healing and peace.

Purpose:          The congregation will seek to practice humility, forgiveness, and acceptance of our current situation.

Scriptures:       1 Peter 1:17-23           Living in the time of exile, being purified by the obedience of faith.

                        Luke 24:13-35 The Walk to Emmaus where Jesus appears to the disciples.


How does Jesus appear to us today? How does Jesus’ resurrection become apparent to us, particularly when we are experience fear or struggles? How can we be resurrection focused rather than distracted by our own issues? How does the process of walking through what has happened in our life have the potential of opening us to see Jesus in our midst?

Liturgist: Pete Wills

Scripture is read from NRSV Bible (New Revised Standard Version)
