Walk to Emmaus
An experience of Christian Renewal
Walk to Emmaus
This event is for adults eighteen years and older who are more established in a local church. Walk to Emmaus is interdenominational and 36 – 40 people enter a unique communal experience. From Thursday evening to Sunday afternoon, the participants, or pilgrims, listen to fifteen talks that give a “short course” in Christian spirituality. They laugh and listen, worship and wonder, share and discuss. Many have testified to the life-giving experience of these three days. Separate yet identical three-day experiences for males and females take place.
Teams are selected according to the same model – male teams lead the events for males and female teams lead the events for females. The Walk supports this model for several reasons:
- It grants married persons time apart to explore their relationships with God without concern for their spouse’s experience.
- It frees some spouses from patterns of behaviour in the marriages that would prevent them from speaking openly about spiritual matters if they were together.
- It offers freedom for expression and sharing that some people do not feel in the presence of the opposite gender, whether participants are married or single.
