How do we best encounter Jesus? Through rich theological discussion? Through spirit-filled worship? Through solitary fasting and reflection? The presence of Christ may be revealed to us in all of these ways, but in this passage we hear of a way all too often unlooked: in the breaking of bread. Fellowship, table-sharing, the breaking of bread are all too often relegated as less important than worship, bible study, or council meetings. On the road to Emmaus, it is in the breaking of bread that Jesus is revealed and made known. Not in the talking or praying or study of scripture but in the radical hospitality, the invitation to a stranger and the sharing of food. How might we follow this example in the coming days? How might the resurrected Christ be revealed in the breaking of bread at the Food Share truck on Tuesday, at Crossroads on Thursday, at the Lord's Table this Sunday or at coffee hour after worship?
