Been preaching, but not posting, in order to assemble a collection of sermons that cover the icon vignettes in the Life of Christ Icon that span Holy Week – the Triumphal Entry, the Last Supper, and the Crucifixion. Listen and reflect along with the readings as you consider those mighty acts by which our Savior brought us from sin and death into holiness and life eternal.
Progressing through Eastertide, our Gospel lesson brings us face to face with Jesus with a couple disciples heading to Emmaus, who then discover our Risen Lord in Scripture and the Breaking of Bread. May we find Jesus in the Bible, his table, and our own tables as well.
My friend, Pastor Arnie McFarland, and I not only share our musical talents in the community, but have held combined worship at each other’s congregations for the past few years during Holy Week. Last night on Maundy Thursday, I led our service Holy Communion while he preached. The lessons can be read here. I invite you to reflect with Pastor Arnie on the unifying power of coming to Christ’s table.
