“They went to the tomb early this morning but didn’t find his body. They came and told us that they had seen a vision of angels, who said he was alive. Then some of our companions went to the tomb and found it just as the women had said, but they did not see Jesus” (Luke 24:22-24)
That first Easter day, two disciples trudge to Emmaus. They have heard that Jesus is missing from his tomb, and that angels have said that he is not dead, but alive. But they don’t believe, and so they trudge slowly to Emmaus. What they haven’t yet spotted is that the one they are talking to is Jesus. Jesus is alive.
You would be very welcome to join us at our 10:30am service in St Andrew, Cuffley or at 8:30am for a service of Holy Communion in St Thomas, Northaw, this Sunday, as we see again the good news that Jesus is alive.
The 10:30am Sunday morning service will also be streamed. This will start at 10:25am, and can be accessed directly via Facebook or YouTube, found on our website, and is advertised on our Facebook page and YouTube channel.
