Update from the Emmaus of Southeast Michigan Board
Re: Fall Walks #188 & #189
The Board for Emmaus of Southeast Michigan met on Saturday, May 9 to discuss the status of our upcoming Fall walks. After sharing concerns and uncertainty around the current condition with COVID-19, it has been determined to postpone the Fall walks #188/189 until Spring 2021. This decision was made to ensure the safety and wellbeing of our community after much thoughtful discussion and prayer. We will continue to monitor and reevaluate as more information becomes available.
As we anticipate a time when we can once again gather as a community remember to be creative in finding ways to continue your journey on the Road to Emmaus by meeting with your 4th day groups through Zoom, Facebook live and other platforms. This is the perfect opportunity to reevaluate your life of piety and work on improving or developing a spiritual discipline. Continue to pray. Pray that the leaders of our world, nation, state, and local governments be guided by the prompting and leading of the Holy Spirit. Pray for our friends and families as they deal with uncertainty and the unknown virus. Pray for our local churches who are reevaluating what it looks like to 'Be the Church.' Above all remember to lift praises to God. Remind yourself of His faithfulness in the past and rest in the knowledge that He is trustworthy and in control.
May your faith in God give you fresh eyes to see His hand at work in your life and in the world today.
In His Service,

The gospel of Luke (24:13-35) relates the story of the risen Christ appearing to two disciples who are walking along the road from Jerusalem to the town of Emmaus on the day of Resurrection. Upon arrival in the village of Emmaus, the disciples recognize Jesus in the breaking of the bread; they remember how their hearts had burned within them as they walked with him on the road.
We invite you to join in an inspirational three-day journey during which you meet Jesus as he is revealed to you through other Christians. On your Walk to Emmaus you will hear stories from scripture and the experience of presenters who address significant facets of God’s grace and Christian discipleship as well as experience New Testament Christianity as a lifestyle. It is a highly structured event designed to strengthen and renew the faith of Christian people, and through them, their families, their congregations, and the world in which they live.
Emmaus is a partnership between laity and clergy toward the renewal of the church.
