Seminary St. - Open 9-9 - Sundays 9-6 SUPPER FOU THREE Three men ate supper together one night in the little town of Emmaus, near Jerusalem. Two of them were sorrowing disciples whose Master had been crucified. The third was the risen Christ, Himself, though His dejected companions had not recognized Him. At the table Jesus broke bread as He had in the Upper Room. Suddenly, the eyes of the disciples were opened. They beheld their Master! Next Sunday is WORLD COMMUNION SUNDAY. Christians the world over will gather in their churches to celebrate the Lord's Supper. Again in the breaking of bread men will realize that Christ lives—that He stands in our midst today. And the joy of the disciples at Emmaus will be multiplied a millionfold in every city cathedral, every village chapel. n e Church .. ii *t Cmrn/ sate o/ ih ^ m *unify „' en « «ai e £°' hi, ' Y °«d read the the mora} Sunday..
