"Stay with us," say the disciples on the road to Emmaus to their unknown companion. In that invitation, and in the breaking of the bread together, they recognize they are communing with Jesus himself.
When we stay with God and God's word for long periods of time, amazing things happen... Peter proclaims that new birth grows from the seed of God's enduring word.
Invite God to stay with you, and wait for amazing growth!
Until we can be together ~ enjoy your personal time with God and reading the word of God... The scripture lessons for Sunday ~ April 26 are:
Luke 24:13-35; I Peter 1:17-23; Acts 2:14a, 36-41; Psalm 116
From Psalm 116 comes an invitation:
"Let's keep our promises to God, as we offer our love to God's world (and our "church") through our gifts..."
Please remember to send your pledge or gifts to the treasurer, so she can continue to pay the monthly bills... thanks! (Springfield UMC - 10 Valley Street - 05156)
Loving God, help us to pay attention to thy silence... to thy Word... to thy presence... in Jesus name... Amen.
