Sermon:   “Covert Actions”

Scripture:   Luke 24:13-35;   Colossians 3:1-4

In our passage this week, and in all the resurrection passages, there is a quality of hiddenness in the disciples’ encounters with the risen Christ.  We will explore what this hiddenness might mean theologically for us in our own encounters with Christ.

Join us for worship and the celebration of Communion on Sunday, May 4th at 10:30 a.m., and for coffee and fellowship after the service.
