Jesus Shows Up

Check out Second Presbyterian Church

Read along with Luke 24:13-35

 

Sermon excerpt: 

On April 20th, 2017 a man was executed after living on death row for 22 years. In the long and detailed article I read about him, one thing stood out: for his last meal, he asked for communion.[1]

I have no idea why he chose that or what it meant to him in his last hours of life on earth. He made no final statement, and the article offered no clues.

I can only surmise that somehow he knew, even when it seems most impossible or completely unexpected, Jesus shows up when the bread is broken – at a simple table in Jerusalem as well as in an Arkansas prison.
