The Walk to Emmaus

"Now on that same day two of them were going to a village called Emmaus.  While they were talking and discussing, Jesus himself came near and went with them...their eyes were opened, and they recognized him; and he vanished from their sight.  They said to each other, 'Were not our hearts burning within us while he was talking to us on the road, while he was opening the scriptures to us?' "

The Gospel of Luke 24:13, 15, 31-32

 
Community Chairperson Message
 

The three main areas we are focused on for this year continue to be:

  1. Boldly extend personal invite to loved ones, fill the Walks
  2. Pray regularly for the Emmaus ministry, leadership, and pilgrims
  3. Participate with your support and service of an Emmaus Walk

Upcoming walks present the opportunity to serve on a Team and deepen your understanding and love of Emmaus, and/or invite a pilgrim on a walk and bless him/her.  If you are on a Team, you can get a co-sponsor outside the Team to partner with you and bring a pilgrim along so your pilgrim will have the full sponsor support.  Try this approach.

Thanks for your boldness in asking friends and family to go on an Emmaus Walk.  Others have shared that they were a little surprised at those folks who have said “Yes” to experiencing an Emmaus Walk.  Just shows we need to ask folks and let the Holy Spirit and them determine which walk they should attend.  You never can tell when you might be the Lord's instrument for deepening a person's spiritual growth and service.  Our Lord calls us to "Go therefore and make disciples of all nations…" Matthew 28:19.  “Stay Bold!  Emmaus is a great way to honor this call.

We continue to need your prayers for the ministry, leadership, and pilgrims.  Your prayers have nurtured the team members, pilgrims and community in general as we prepare for another walk.  The big payoff is what happens when the Holy Spirit moves the people who attend and/or work on the walk.  We know from experience that Miracles will be done on this weekend.  Keep all in your prayers.

Stay prayerfully vigilant.  We continue to look for clergy to support the Walks.  If you have Emmaus clergy ask if they might serve.  Bobby Hantelman - 281-744-2253, bhantelman@ferrariofhouston.com, the Clergy Community Growth Board member, is available to talk with clergy, to answer any questions, and to explain what service opportunities are available.  Folks say Clergy are more willing to serve if asked by one of their congregation.

Participate with your support and service. Nothing conveys your interest and love of the Emmaus Ministry like your smiling face and presence. Invariably folks who attend candlelight and closings add the warmth and enthusiasm of their Emmaus experience and enrich the gathering for all attendees.

Participation and service continue to grow.  Keep it up!  Continue to look at the website and signup under "Community Servanthood" for opportunities for service on the upcoming Women’s Walk.  Lord bless our service to experience the fullness of the Joy you intend for us.  Look forward to sharing another Closing to hear what the new 4th Day wants to share.  Don’t you think that is always special?

Thanks for your commitment and service!

  DeColores!
