I started writing this on a train for Leeds almost 2 weeks ago, not only did the wifi fail but the train never left the station.
I still find it hard to discern or understand the structure of the Easter Lectionary. Today's Gospel is a continuation of the previous passage in Luke (Emmaus) which we heard a year ago. How important is it to know that connection? Can music act as an aide-memoire. I don't think we had used the Haugen On the journey to Emmaus though we had used the arrangement of the melody. I am not sure whether I found it focussed or restricted in its emphasis on welcoming the stranger.
We have used I received the living God for a long time but I can see us using it again when we have John 6 in the summer.
