Third Sunday of Easter
“The Blood of Christ”
Rev James L. Mayland
7:30am & 9am Sunday, April 23, 2023 in the Upper Sanctuary
Trinity Lutheran Church & School
As We Gather: Today we see Jesus appear to His disciples on the road to Emmaus. They say afterward that their hearts burned within them as Jesus opened up to them the Scriptures. In the Reading from Acts, those gathered on Pentecost are cut to the heart by Peter’s words. And in the Epistle, Peter speaks of purified souls and hearts. It seems our hearts are being greatly affected by Christ. They are cut, burning, and purified by the Word of Christ.
