The disciples who meet Jesus along the road to Emmaus are at a sad point in their spiritual journeys. The man they had hoped and even dared to believe was the Messiah is dead and missing from his tomb. Their own grief and sadness blind them to the presence of the risen Christ among them. How often do we miss out on Christ’s presence in our midst? How often are we too preoccupied to see the moments of resurrection and new life around us?
This week – invite someone you’d like to get to know better to dinner (or cook her or him dinner) and be mindful of how important sharing meals can be in forming and building relationships.
