From the Community Spiritual Director...

We are very thankful we will be having the Men’s and Women’s walks this spring! There is still time to sponsor someone. The time period for getting in registrations before the walks has been extended due to Asbury’s need to reserve rooms.

It would be best for the application and check be received on or before March 6th by our registrar, that way we are sure to have enough rooms ready at Asbury Inn.

We all remember the blessings of our original walks, let’s allow God to work in the lives of pilgrims this spring. Prayerfully consider who you might ask.

De Colores!

Next Walks

Men’s Walk - April 11 - 14

Women’s Walk - April 25 - 28

Asbury Theological Seminary & Asbury Inn

We currently have 15 Men and 20 Women attending the upcoming Walks. There is space and time for more!!!! Our deadline for Asbury Inn for rooms is one Month Prior to the walks. To give us time to get our rooming lists together, we need to have applications for the Men's walk no later than March 6th and March 20th for the Women's Walk. Applications are available at "Resources" at the top of the page. You can return the applications by mail, or you can scan and email them back to lexemmaus@gmail.com.

If you are using the US Mail within one week of the deadline, please send us an email to let us know about the applications you are mailing to us. Remember, there are Scholarships from the LEC available, do not let money be an issue. In addition, many churches and reunion groups also financially support people who need help attending an Emmaus Walk.

From the Community Lay Director...   When I was asked to be the community Lay Director, my first thought was “NO”. I was in the Treasurer position and absolutely loved it because I am comfortable with numbers. It is what I do for a living. I love producing reports, balancing accounts and working with figures. My first thought when asked to be Lay Director was all that public speaking and how I am NOT very comfortable with that. But as the meeting went on, I knew that God was calling me to the task. I knew that as Treasurer, I was in my “comfort zone” and that I needed to come out of that zone so I could be stretched. In this position, I will need to rely more on God than on myself to do this task. As a result, my faith will be increased and who doesn’t need that!  Now I am asking you to do the same. As the walk lay directors are assigning tasks for the walk, let God take you out of your comfort zone so He can reveal Himself to you in a new way. There is room for everyone on this team. Whether you are asked to be inside or outside of the conference room, please allow God to show you where He needs you and say “YES”!  De Colores!  Susan Bryant  Community Lay Director
