Two disciples, way to the Emmaus, meeting the stranger, and the rest is, well, a heck of a story of transformation. They met the Christ, unaware that it WAS the Christ. They finally warmed up to the stranger, sharing some bread along the journey.
Maybe it was the bread.
Maybe it was the act of sharing the bread.
Maybe it was a little bit of both.
The rest is a heck of a story.
These things continue to happen today. Sitting down with a stranger, meeting the stranger where she or he is, whomever it may be, and the rest is a heck of a story.
There, there is the Spirit of Christ, in both guest and stranger.
