Where is the Risen Christ being revealed to us, especially in this time of Covid-19? Not among the large crowds and masses, but perhaps in our own homes as we break bread. Perhaps on our lonely walks in our sorrow and sadness.
Perhaps in the act of recognizing our shared humanity, seeing each other across the street, or seeing those who are still in need sleeping outside. The Risen Christ is among us, perhaps where we’d least expect to find him .
Jesus appears to the two disciples on the road to Emmaus, who invite him to stay the night with them. They share a meal and, as Jesus breaks the bread, they recognize him.
Prayer Creator of the Earth, You formed us from the stardust of the universe’s creation and breathed into us spirit and life. You gave us a world to care for. As we commemorate Earth Day, we are recognizing our sacred duty to be good stewards of the earth. While the pandemic has forced us to slow down our planet’s demise, may we learn from this time how to better care for the only planet You have given us to live upon. May we be better caretakers of the earth’s creatures and resources, of all the life You have made. Grant us wisdom on how we can live better and love Your creation. Amen.
As we move to virtual worship, we can’t forget that bringing our gifts, offering is part of worship. We thank God that we still have the opportunity to do so even in these uncertain times.
