The God Who Only Knows Four Words by Hafiz

Every Child Has known God, Not the God of names, not the God of don’ts, Not the God who ever does anything weird, But the God who only knows four words And keeps repeating them, saying: “Come dance with Me.” Come Dance.

The Emmaus Story: Luke 24:13-32:

After Jesus died, the disciples Cleopas and Simon, journeyed to Emmaus. On the road they met a stranger and the three talked until they reached their destination. As they journeyed together the friends of Jesus saw only a stranger. Not until they shared bread together that evening did they recognize in their midst the person of Jesus. At that moment He vanished leaving them to share and grow in their understanding of what had happened. They recollected together how their hearts’ sensed this mystery while their minds were blind. As we journey together as a community in faith we, too, are invited to listen and see.
