On the Road - a reflection on the walk to Emmaus

Botanic Gardens Edinburgh photo by J.Woods

How could your heart burn
yet your eyes stay misty?
How could you feel your quickening pulse...
and not know whose words they were?

He called you foolish and slow...
He began to explain – again...
He began to tell you – again
He continued to show you – again, and again...
Yet still, you did not realise!!

But, his words did enter your hearts and minds;
his words gave you hunger
Hunger for more; hunger to know
hunger to engage with this engaging man
and with the Word of God -
So well known – so little understood.

So you invited him in... and suddenly you knew!!
Suddenly you understood!
Suddenly he was there – alive, known, loved, real!!
Now you run!!!
Run boys, run! Go tell the others, go share the joy –

Light came into the world, and the darkness did not overcome it.
