Witnesses to Christ in the Ordinary

It’s been an interesting weekend. I have had a wonderful dinner with friends, I was supposed to go to Camp Horizon to help the family mission team on their work weekend. Instead, I was meeting with a family for a funeral on Tuesday. This woman died unexpectedly, but her memory will be a blessing.

We are almost at the end of the Easter season, and in worship we honored the United Methodist Women (something my annual conference has done for several decades on the first Sunday in May) and celebrated the Sacrament of Holy Communion in all the services.

I am always fascinated by Luke’s story of the disciples on the road to Emmaus. This story of disappointments and grief, balanced by faith and new hope touches my spirit every time I read it. Today’s worship service can be found here.

I am going to be diligent this week to look for the risen Christ in the ordinary moments of my life. May I be a witness to the love and grace Christ offers all.
