Season 2: Episode 9 | You are Witnesses of these Things
As we conclude season two, the disciples on the Emmaus Road are so excited about what has happened in and through their encounter with Jesus on the Emmaus Road that they jump up from dinner and turn right around to go back to Jerusalem to share what has happened with the other disciples. The trauma of all they had been through has been redeemed and their spiritual journey now leads them to discern the mission Jesus has for them. Ruth and Steve discuss the creative tension in the spiritual life between mission and formation. Steve offers us an advice freebie and Ruth brings the season to a close by highlighting how mission cannot be discerned or sustained apart from commitment to an ongoing process of spiritual transformation.
