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

Board Election Results

The Houston North Emmaus Community is blessed by 4th day who serve on teams, as day servants, 4th day community activities, sponsorship, and most of all prayers for our community and Pilgrims.  This year is no different.  We were blessed with all those willing to serve on the 2016 HNEC Board Election.  The newly elected Board Members for 2017 are Rick Bruce, Tami Denton, John Follis, Orpha Haag, Ed Kelly, and Laura Olsen.  On behalf of the HNEC Board of Directors, thank you to each of them for their service on the Board.

Thank you again to the entire 4th Day Community and many blessings!

Community Chairperson Message

     Ephesians 6, starting at verse 10 says:  “10Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power.  11Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes.  12For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms”.

     Here we are, at the start of another year, another season of Emmaus Walks… When we begin to further the Kingdom of God, the devil starts working harder against us.  It happens in our families, churches and even in our Emmaus community.  We are currently forming our leadership teams, along with the first two teams for walks #87 and #88.  To say this has been a difficult process would be an understatement.  I am confident though, that we will form the “Perfect” teams God has already selected for us.  Our Lay leaders for this year need our prayers.  We need to ask for God’s protection for them as we move forward.  We need to be in continued prayer for the pilgrims of 2016.  We need to pray for their courage to step out in faith, that this may be the year for them to attend a walk.  We need to pray for our Board of Directors, to help them make decisions for this community.  Prayer is our best weapon against the forces of evil we encounter everyday.

     Putting on the full armor of God is something we learn as children.  We made paper helmets, cardboard shields, and plastic breastplates.  Now that we are adults, it is time to realize that the spiritual forces, poised against us, are REAL.  I encourage each person who reads this to say a prayer, and ask God to protect us, the ones we love, and the ones we are yet to meet.  The kingdom of God will overcome.  It will take hard work.  We will have set-backs.  We will rise up again when we fall.  The key is to keep getting back up!

     2016 is set to be an exciting year in this Emmaus Community!  I encourage everyone to Donate Agape in needed Areas, Serve on a Team, Volunteer in areas of Community Servanthood, or Attend a Candlelight or Closing service this year.  I am looking forward to meeting more of our Community Members and Pilgrims.  We have a “Kick-Off” Gathering coming up on February 27th at Christ Church UMC in The Woodlands.  If you would like Sponsorship Training, we will start that at 5:15pm.  Dinner will be at 6:00pm followed by worship!  I hope to see you there!
