Daily reading: Luke 24: 13-35
Tuesday, April 25, 2017

Most likely Cleopas and the unnamed disciple had been anticipating change, change that would take place because the Messiah had entered Jerusalem, but that all went horribly downhill quickly and ended on a cross.  Blindsided by what has happened to their Lord they take the road home with heavy hearts.  They are returning to their old routine of getting up and going to work, of coming home, to sit in their favorite chair and to continue with life as they had before Jesus had come. 
They do not make it very far down the road before they encounter a stranger who strikes up a conversation with them and begins to talk with them about the past week. 
Practice being mindful today.  Seek for the presence of God in the ordinary and extraordinary moments of your day.
Take time to consider if you are backtracking or moving forward.

Prayer: God, help me to seek you out today.  Nudge me to offer hospitality and may I be ever aware of your presence in stranger and in friend.  Amen.
