Call of the Risen Christ
In worship this week, Rev. Lang will begin with the Scripture from Luke 24:36-48 and talk about his experience and call from the Risen Christ. This is a recounting of the story of Jesus meeting his disciples after the resurrection. This account appears in the gospel of Luke just after the disciples recognize Jesus in the breaking of bread around the table. Rev. Lang will draw from the three sources mentioned in the text: the law of Moses, the prophets, and the psalms, to learn who this Risen Christ is. The key to the Scripture is to remember that we are called at the end of verse 47 to repentance and forgiveness. These hard tasks, repentance and forgiveness, are the tasks that the Risen Christ has come to call us to bring forth in the world. Join us for worship at 9:00am or 11:00am.
