“13Now on that same day two of them were going to a village called Emmaus, about seven miles from Jerusalem, 14and talking with each other about all these things that had happened. 15While they were talking and discussing, Jesus himself came near and went with them, 16but their eyes were kept from recognizing him. 17And he said to them, “What are you discussing with each other while you walk along?” They stood still, looking sad. 18Then one of them, whose name was Cleopas, answered him, “Are you the only stranger in Jerusalem who does not know the things that have taken place there in these days?”
God of the Resurrection, we know you are a God of miracles and appear in unexpected places. May our journeys allow us to recognize your presence along the path with us, no matter the difficulties that may lie ahead, we are not alone. As the sun warms our skin and reflects around us, may we remember how you’ve strengthened us with the stories of faith, we hold them in our hearts. Amen.
