Second Sunday of Easter

 

10:00AM service including Holy Communion

 

INTRODUCTION

 

In today's gospel the risen Christ appears to the disciples and offers them the gift of peace. Even amid doubts and questions, we experience the resurrection in our Sunday gathering around word and meal, and in our everyday lives. Throughout the coming Sundays of Easter the first two readings will be from the Acts of the Apostles and the first letter of Peter. Even as the early Christians proclaimed the resurrection, we rejoice in the new birth and living hope we receive in baptism.

 

 

 

Readings

 

 

Acts 2:14a, 22–32

Psalm 16: In your presence there is fullness of joy. (Ps. 16:11)

1 Peter 1:3–9

John 20:19–31

 

Prayer of the Day

 

Almighty and eternal God,

the strength of those who believe and the hope of those who doubt,

may we, who have not seen, have faith in you

and receive the fullness of Christ's blessing,

who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,

one God, now and forever.

Third Sunday of Easter

 

 

INTRODUCTION

 

Today's gospel begins with two disciples walking to Emmaus, overcome with sadness, loss, and disappointment. They had hoped Jesus, who was crucified, would be the one to redeem Israel! Yet the risen Christ walks with them, and then opens their eyes in the breaking of the bread. Each Sunday our hearts burn within us as the scriptures are proclaimed and Christ appears to us as bread is broken and wine is poured. The story of Emmaus becomes the pattern of our worship each Lord's day.

 

Readings

 

Acts 2:14a, 36–41

Psalm 116:1–4, 12–19  I will call on the name of the LORD. (Ps. 116:13)

1 Peter 1:17–23

Luke 24:13–35

 

 

Prayer of the Day

 

O God, your Son makes himself known to all his disciples

in the breaking of bread.

Open the eyes of our faith,

that we may see him in his redeeming work,

who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,

one God, now and forever.
