A Message from the "R"

Scripture: John 11:40

Jesus replied, “Didn’t I tell you that if you believe, you will see God’s Glory?

As I think back on my many Emmaus weekends, the thing that stands out in my mind is the feeling of how the experience unfolds before our eyes as the weekend progresses. We all come from different places and with different faith backgrounds but each of us gets to experience, and be filled with, God’s glory and grace. It doesn’t matter if we are a pilgrim or a veteran team member, Emmaus is a journey to be lived and we always come to Sunday different than when we began. When I heard the song “Glorious Unfolding” by Stephen Chapman Curtis I felt that it fit perfectly into the idea that our lives, our faith and our journey continue to grow and unfold. As we embrace this journey in our own ways the lyrics speak to us.

“And this is going to be a glorious unfolding

Just you wait and see and you will be amazed

You’ve just got to believe the story is so far from over

So hold on to every promise God has made to us

And watch this glorious unfolding”

The team of E-180 is embracing this journey together as we prepare for the pilgrims that will join us on the mountain. Our goal is to serve each pilgrim where they are and to help them to fully seek God’s glory and grace in their lives. We ask for your prayers, palanca and support as we seek to serve.
