Theme: Paths converge in Jerusalem; Stories shared in fellowship; Hope restored
We love the story of Jesus walking alongside a pair of confused disciples. We celebrate the presence of the Lord, even when we do not see him, and we receive the call to walk alongside others.
There is more to this story, though, if we follow Cleopas and his companion back to Jerusalem. As their paths converge with Peter, Mary, and other men and women in Jesus' fledgling following, their testimony raised hope and expectations. How did the Lord use their gathering and mutual witness? What does this say to us as we look at the relationship between our individual experiences of discipleship through life beyond Sundays, beyond worship gatherings, and the important role of those gathering events in our lives?
