Making Room For The Other

The story of Ruth and Boaz is truly extraordinary.  Though Jesus isn’t mentioned, I believe that he is fully present as Boaz creates a space at his table for the foreigner Ruth and her destitute mother-in-law Naomi.  Indeed, God shows up when they make room for each other, break bread, and share their lives.  I’m wondering how we might do the same to make room at our tables with people who are different from us and so experience the risen Lord among us.
