Today Lord is the day that you have made and the day you have given us to live:
Kindle our hearts on the way, that we may recognise you in the Scriptures,
in the breaking of the bread, and in each other.
As the poor widow welcomed Elijah,
let us be open to the richness and miracle in meeting.
As Abraham and Sarah welcomed passing strangers,
let us entertain the possibility of angels in disguise.
Let our eyes be opened,
that we may recognise in our neighbour the divine presence of Christ. Amen.
