Let’s slow down the pace a bit now–
from the women running from the empty tomb
to the two disciples walking on the road to Emmaus.
It is one of the most unforgettable Easter stories,
as ordinary as it is magical.
Join the two disciples as they encounter
our Lord on the road.
Note that they are on their way out of Jerusalem–
they have given up on being disciples of Jesus
even if–and this is the incredible part!–
they’ve just heard talk that He might be risen!
They have given up.
Play this instrumental piece
as you accompany these two on the road.
