The Road to Emmaus

I am a Quaker. Quaker Meetings are silent unless someone feels moved inwardly to stand and speak. In my early days going to Quaker Meeting I went through a very rough patch at work which no one knew about. I went to Meeting one day and sat there in misery and despair. I thought ‘ I feel just like the disciples did after Christ’s resurrection when they were walking on the road to Emmaus with nothing to cheer them only no Jesus is going to appear and cheer me as he reappeared and cheered them. Almost immediately an elderly Quaker stood up and spoke, saying, ‘Friends sometimes we feel alone and lost, like the disciples on the road to Emmaus....’ Eerie.
