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)
