The Second Great Surprise

I’ve was asked to speak this Sunday at our Methodist church in Canyon. I’ve decided to talk about the disciples on the Emmaus road in Luke 24 and what I call “the great surprise.” Their great surprise is the same as that of the shepherds in Luke 2. God had come down to earth. He lived in a body.

And there’s a second great surprise, found in Acts 2 and I Corininthians 12. God is still doing it. Jesus is alive today in a Body, your body, my body.

It’s what my novelette is all about, and it’s what energizes my faith. As the Gospel of Luke says, it’s “good news of a great joy which shall be for all the people” (Luke 2:10).
