This Sunday, the third Sunday after Easter, we will be looking at the Gospel of Luke 24:13-35 which is a story about two disciples who are on a journey. Cleopas and another unnamed person are taking a short trip from Jerusalem to Emmaus—about seven miles. Of course, they are walking. They are hoping that Jesus of Nazareth, the prophet who had been powerful in word and deed, the one who had been condemned to death and crucified, is the one who will free the Jews from Roman domination. When it comes time for dinner, they invite the stranger walking with them to join them. The man accepts. When he breaks bread with them, their eyes are opened to the fact that their guest is Jesus. These two disciples travel from doubt to despair to faith in the Resurrection of Jesus. We, too, are on a trip. We spend our lives traveling not only on business, for pleasure, or to visit family and friends, but also from doubt and despair to faith in the Resurrection of Jesus. We do not go on the same physical road taken by the two disciples, but we travel the same road of faith. As we do, we find that we are sojourning in what appears to be a strange land. Come, Join us. We will explore more together.

Call to Worship

ONE: We need your presence on the long road, Lord.

ALL: The road between fear and hope,

ONE: the road between the place where all is lost

ALL: and the place of resurrection.

ONE: Like the disciples walking the road to Emmaus,

ALL: we are in need of your company!

ONE: Jesus, stand among us, in your risen power,

ALL: let this time of worship, be a hallowed hour. Amen.

Singing:                Draw the circle wide MV 145


Draw the circle wide. Draw it wider still.

Let this be our song, no one stands alone,

Standing side by side, draw the circle wide.

  1. God the still-point of the circle,

‘round whom all creation turns;

Nothing lost, but held forever,

in God’s gracious arms. R

  1. Let our hearts touch far horizons,

so encompass great and small;

Let our loving know no borders,

faithful to God’s call. R

  1. Let the dreams we dream be larger,

than we’ve ever dreamed before,

Let the dream of Christ be in us,

open every door. R

Lord’s Prayer

Our Father, who art in heaven,

hallowed be thy Name,

thy kingdom come,

thy will be done,

on earth as it is in heaven.

Give us this day our daily bread.

And forgive us our trespasses,

as we forgive those

who trespass against us.

And lead us not into temptation,

but deliver us from evil.

For thine is the kingdom,

and the power, and the glory,

for ever and ever. Amen.

‘हे हाम्रा पिता, जो स्‍वर्गमा हुनुहुन्‍छ,

तपाईंको नाउँ पवित्र होस्‌।

तपाईंको राज्‍य आओस्‌। 

 तपाईंको इच्‍छा स्‍वर्गमा जस्‍तो छ,

त्‍यस्‍तै यस पृथ्‍वीमा पूरा होस्‌।

हामीलाई आज हाम्रो दैनिक भोजन दिनुहोस्‌।

हाम्रा अपराधहरू क्षमा गर्नुहोस्,

जसरी हामीले आफ्‍ना अपराधीहरूलाई क्षमा गरेका छौं।

हामीलाई परीक्षामा पर्न नदिनुहोस्,

तर दुष्‍टबाट छुटाउनुहोस्‌

किनभने राज्‍य, पराक्रम र महिमा

सदासर्वदा तपाईंकै हुन्, आमेन।’

Singing:                Don’t be afraid

Don’t be afraid.  My love is stronger,

My love is stronger than your fear.

Don’t be afraid. My love is stronger,

And I have promised, promised to be always near.


Scripture Reading: Luke 24:13-35 (English & French)

Community Prayer:


Singing:                I need thee every hour

I need thee eve’ry hour, most gracious Lord

No tender voice like thine can peace afford

I need thee, O I need thee

Ev’ry hour I need thee

O bless me now my saviour,

I come to thee!


I need thee ev’ry hour, stay thou near by

Temptations lose their power,

when thou art nigh


I need thee ev’ry hour, in joy or pain!

Come quickly and abide, or life in vain.


I need thee ev’ry hour, most holy One

O make me thine indeed, thou blessed Son



Singing:                You shall go out with Joy VU 884

You shall go out with joy

and be led forth with peace

The mountains and the hills

will break forth before you

There’ll be shouts of joy,

and all the tree of the field will clap,

will clap their hands

And all the trees of the field will clap their hands xx

The trees of the field will clap their hands xx

The trees of the field will clap their hands

While you go out with joy.
