March 17th, 2020 Daily Devotional

Good morning, SPC family.

I’m not always the best at keeping up with reading the Lenten devotional every day...sometimes I have to catch up on a day...or two...but I picked the booklet up this morning and discovered today’s scripture reading was from one of my favorite stories: the road to Emmaus. And in the reflection, I read this:

“Two friends walking toward Emmaus thought all was lost. They talked about the great things they thought would happen because of Jesus. But not anymore. Jesus was dead. They heard rumors about him being alive, but they just couldn’t believe it. And then it happened. Jesus walked alongside them and later joined them to break bread. In the breaking of the bread, their eyes were opened. It was Jesus. They were reunited. They ran back to Jerusalem to tell the disciples the good news.”

I can’t wait until we are reunited in person at SPC. When that day comes, I am going to want to run and tell everyone the good news! In the meantime, I am holding onto the certain hope that the rumors are true: Jesus is alive, even at times when it’s hard to see him. When I break some bread today, I’ll be thinking of that, and all of you. Sending lots of love across the internet!

(P.S. if you didn’t have a chance to pick up a Lenten devotional booklet and would like one, let me know, and we’ll gladly drop one at your door or mail it to you.)
