To My Fellow Sojourners on the Walk to Emmaus,
Many of you have expressed questions and concerns about our upcoming walks and the changing conditions we face in Michigan regarding the COVID-19 virus. Last evening the Emmaus of Southeast Michigan Board of Directors gathered to discuss those concerns and determine our best course of action. After prayer and discernment an agreement was reached to defer the Spring Emmaus Walks.
To everyone who cleared their schedules to join the team we would like to say thank you. For those who stepped up to sponsor, thank you. For all the prayers and behind the scene hours invested, we express our deepest gratitude. Each of you have experienced the value of an Emmaus Walk and have honored your commitment to Christ when you received your cross.
As we look forward to the Fall Walks let us unite in prayer for our country, nation and world.
God Loves You And So Do We!

Your 2020 Emmaus of SE Michigan Board of Directors
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.
