The 3rd Sunday of Easter

April 23, 2023

Instead of a sermon, this morning Elizabeth invited the congregation into prayerful contemplation of the painting Kitchen Maid with the Supper at Emmaus by Diego Velázquez (1599-1660), which was painted around 1617-1618 and now may be seen at the National Gallery of Ireland.

We were also invited to contemplate the poems by Denise Levertov and Natasha Tretheway found at https://www.saltproject.org/progressive-christian-blog/2023/4/17/two-emmaus-poems-denise-levertov-and-natasha-trethewey
