How do we cultivate a deeper faith as we walk our Christian paths? And as we walk, where can we turn to look for hope within hopelessness, or joy within despair? Just as Jesus revealed himself to the disciples on the road to Emmaus, he continues to reveal himself today to modern-day believers--offering us guidance and nourishment, and patiently and compassionately walking with us in faith.
In Emmaus Road: Stories, Scripture, Hymns, and Art for the Christian Journey, author and Reverend Gary M. Schimmer shares stories of humor, surprise, justice, sorrow, and hope from his congregational ministry--stories that will stir your emotions and deepen your knowledge of the church's faith and practice. Each story has a corresponding Bible verse, theological reflection, hymn, and art suggestion, and Rev. Schimmer invites believers to dwell on their spiritual growth in all of these ways and begin a journey to a deeper faith.
These moments of faith are offered as a gift for your reflections on the theology and practice of the Christian faith. Believers can use them to grow spiritually and to improve their preaching and teaching. More than anything, dwelling on the presence of God's hand in the everyday lives of his children will help you deepen your faith and draw closer to God the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
