Pew Leaflet Sunday 30 April 2017

Many people today are following their own version of the Emmaus road. They are walking in disappointment. They are walking away from hope. For many this involves walking away from the church. It’s striking that Jesus begins with a question: ‘What are you discussing together as you walk along?’(17) Luke captures the drama of it. ‘They stood still, their faces downcast’ (17). They’re walking along the road, but they have to stop, stand still, pause before they can begin. Jesus gives them space to tell their story, to share their pain, to speak their disappointment. We may need to do that as well. The more we understand people’s struggles, the more our message of resurrection will connect with them.
