Women's Walk #185  
Thursday, March 21, 2019 - Sunday, March 24, 2019 
Are you fluent in ASL? If so, we have a special opportunity 
to serve at Women's Walk #185

A sister in the Lord who is coming to Walk #185 March 21-24 is hearing impaired, and we dearly desire that she, like all the Pilgrims, has every opportunity for the fullest Walk experience possible. 

In that spirit, I am asking any community member(s) fluent in ASL (American Sign Language) to prayerfully consider blessing this wonderful lady with gift of translating for her at one or more very special times during the course of the weekend (times are approximate): 

Thursday, 3/21; 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM (Opening - Up to New Found Friend) 
Saturday, 3/23; 8:00 - 10:00 PM (Candlelight - ASL just while Pilgrims are present on altar) 
Sunday, 3/24; 3:30 - 5:30 (Closing) 

Please text or call me at (734) 558-3036 if you are led to serve, or if you just have any questions.

What is Emmaus?

We invite you to join in an inspiring experience during which you meet Jesus as he is revealed to you through other Christians. The Walk to Emmaus is a three-day experience of 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.

A Journey with Christ

Luke relates the story of two disciples of Jesus who were going along the road from Jerusalem to Emmaus. As these two friends were walking together, they shared their heart’s deepest concerns about the death of Jesus. An unknown person, who was the risen Christ, joined them and explained the scriptures as they walked, how it was ordained that Christ would suffer and so enter his glory. Toward the end of the day’s travel, they urged the stranger to eat with them. The climax happened when Christ took bread and gave it to them. the two had their eyes opened and they recognized the stranger as the risen Christ. They rushed back to Jerusalem to tell the others. (Luke 24:13-35)
