This Week at Emmaus Way
Trinity Sunday, 6/11
Our summer dialogue "Alchemy" is off and running!
Last week Tim looked at "Fire" and how fire, in part, functions as a material reality God has chosen for self-revelation.This week, Molly will lead us in a dialogue around the physical element of "Salt." Unlike fire, salt has not functioned as a material reality in which God has chosen for self-revelation. But rather, salt, in many ways, functions as an element that reveals more about humanity and how we might function in the world as people of God. What does it mean that salt is both vital for life and yet also an element we've gone to war and killed for? What are the implications of an element in scripture that carries both positive (Matthew 5:13, Mark 9:50, Luke 14:34-35) and negative (Genesis 19:23-26) realities? And how are these complex realities stemming from one, simple physical element, "Salt," to shape us (if at all)?
We'll dialogue about these things and more on Sunday! Hope you'll join us.
Kids at EWay
This week the kids will be learning about the Eucharist and how it's celebrated across faith traditions. We'll talk about basic history of the Meal, why we celebrate an open table, and practice serving communion to each other. The kids will also be helping with our table invitation this week, and be hosts at the table in the big room!
