This Week at Emmaus Way
Ordinary Time, 7/9
This Sunday, we are planning our next installment of the Alchemy series with a focus on "Water." Water, like many of the elements we have considered this summer functioned in the ancient world as both symbol and reality across a wide continuum from chaos to life-giving necessity/gift. Water destroyed and cleansed. It took life and preserved life. And, also like many of the "physicalities" we have discussed this summer, water also was deployed in God's self revelation and description of the gospel ("living water").
Join usthis Sundayas we consider water a primary physical reality in our own spiritual formation!

We've been talking about the gifts of the Holy Spirit.This Sundaywe will be talking about the fruit of the Holy Spirit! Just like fruit comes from fruit trees, spiritual fruit comes from the Holy Spirit. In a way, we like a tree and the Holy Spirit produces fruit in us! Can you think about what kind of fruit that would be?
It's been building up to this point! Do you remember how the mountain was described? How do you think the people felt? What about Moses? What do you think they were expecting God to say to them at his holy mountain?
