Buechner says it was an escape, but it was also a journey home. Either way, in the end it was a round trip they took, those walkers to Emmaus who turned around and went back to Jerusalem, a lot of walking for one already emotional day.
Where are you headed this Saturday, preachers? (Bonus points if you are an international geocacher...)
I hope you'll share your journey and any surprises you may find along the way. How are you handling the children's message? We always like to share those around here.
Join us, and you may be sure of finding a friend to walk with you. Bring some food to share, and I'll keep the coffee and Diet Coke flowing!
