They Thought They Were Going to Emmaus

They thought they were going to Emmaus.

Preoccupied, as they were, with what lay behind,

They could not see The Way

Even as He walked alongside them.

They thought they were talking about recent events.

Preoccupied, as they were, with their own experience,

They could not see The Truth

Until He put the ancient story together for them.

They thought the stranger was going farther.

Preoccupied, as they were, with the lateness of the hour,

They could not see that The Life

Had no intention of leaving them.

They thought they were sharing a meal together.

Preoccupied, as they were, by the ordinariness of the bread,

They could not see Jesus

Until He broke His body before them once again.

They thought they were going to Emmaus.

They ended up in a whole new world of understanding.
