This Week at Emmaus Way
Throughout Lent, we've been asking and will continue to ask ourselves:
How does repentance reframe our imagination?
What does it turn us from?
What does it turn us to?"
This week, as we turn toward one another and ponder what it looks like to reshape our lives, reorient our priorities, recalibrate our sense of empathy, and return our focus to God and one another, we will build off our dialogues and our overarching framing questions while also hoping to find a vibrancy within our new understandings of repentance. The story of the woman at the well, John 4:5-30, will help us uncover ever expanding notions of repentance. We will converse about where we see repentance in this specific text and how this narrative and the themes of repentance within this narrative connect (or disconnect) with our lives.
Outside of our weekly gathering, the EWay community is invited to engage in additional Lenten opportunities.
We hope you'll join us!
This Week With Our Kids:
This Sunday we will hear a special parable of Jesus, the parable of the mustard seed. Jesus said it is the smallest of seeds, but it becomes the largest of shrubs. How can something so small become so big? How is it like the kingdom of heaven?
This Sunday we will revisit the parable of the mustard seed. Jesus said the mustard seed is the smallest of seeds, but it becomes the largest of shrubs. What would make that happen? What power? What does this tell us about the Kingdom of God?
This Sunday we will continue our Exodus Bible study. Moses, a Hebrew raised as an Egyptian prince, has now fled to Midian where he married the daughter of a Midianite priest and started a family. How do you think Moses thinks of himself? What do you think God thinks of him?
