On the Road to Emmaus
Rev. Clare Petersberger
ongoing exploration of the world’s religions, Easter lends itself to a
celebration of the wisdom of Christianity. Today we reflect on a story
in Luke about two travelers walking on the road to Emmaus who encounter a
stranger who wishes them peace. With the stranger, the travelers share
the headline newsincluding their grief over the crucifixion of Jesus.
The stranger listens. As the sun sets, the two travelers invite the
stranger to break bread with them. In the midst of radical hospitality,
the eyes of the two travelers are opened to the identity of the
stranger. Who do you encounter on your own, metaphorical, road to
Emmaus? What invitation flows from this encounter? And how is your life
transformed? In the words of the religious scholar John Dominic Crossan,
“ ”Emmaus never happened. Emmaus always happens.” Happy Easter!
