The scripture reading for this Sunday was Luke 24:13-35.

A member of our Youth Group was the pianist for the music by J. S. Bach.

Rev. Laura Mayo gave the proclamation.

"Resurrection happens, when we welcome, when we help, when Easter’s invitation finagles a foothold of in-breaking welcome, assistance, acceptance. When the ordinary is infused with the holy, every gesture of hospitality is an expression of the sacred."
