On the Road to Emmaus
St Luke 24:13-32
Two disciples were on the road to Emmaus, seven miles from Jerusalem…on
Easter afternoon. I have been on that road! Then again, so have many of 
you! It’s a road marked by:
 Grief Disappointment, andPain.Today, March 9, I received an email about my friend, Mike. He absolutelyloves to ride horses. He and his family spend entire vacations on some trail
ride…in Colorado, Missouri, South Dakota or Nebraska. Mike often worksthe rodeo. Today I received the sad news…Mike is dying, currently a patient
of hospice. Mike and his precious wife, Carol, are on the Road to Emmaus.
Then, here’s a man on his second year of unemployment. It’s about to runout. He feels nothing but discouragement and uselessness. He’s on his Road
to Emmaus.We have several beautiful people who are numbered among our family and
friends at Chapel…they are somewhere along the Road to Emmaus.
 Surely, you have walked this way yourself.When Jesus and the two disciples arrived in Emmaus, it was supper time.They urged Jesus to join them for a meal. As they sat at supper with Him,
they asked Him to offer grace. And Jesus “took bread, blessed and broke it
and gave it to them.
Then their eyes were opened
, and they recognized Him;
and He vanished from their sight.” St. Luke 24:30
-31On the Road to Emmaus, they
that Jesus was alive again.In the breaking of the bread, they
that Jesus had been raised to life.
Every time we “eat the bread” and “drink the cup,” we experience the pres-
ence of the Risen Christ!

Easter, A time of Reflection
4-6th Graders Endure a LONG Movie
The 4-6 Grade Class just finished watching themovie The Ten Commandments. It took 7 weeksfor us to complete it. Grace Shewe and Kasey Win-ters both had perfect attendance-for which theywere rewarded with a little gift. We sang a songabout the Ten Commandments to the tune ofFarmer in the Dell. We also played a card gameanswering questions pertaining to them. They dida great job answering them! We also built an Arkof the Covenant and put in it: Tablets of the TenCommandments, manna in a golden jar, andAaron's blooming staff. We also have a blue veil tocover it. What a great group of kids. I do have theCD if anyone would want to borrow it. ~ CarolLamer
