Northern Lights Emmaus

Upper Room Walk to Emmaus
Upper Room Walk to Emmaus

The Gospel of Luke tells the story of the resurrected Christ appearing to two men walking on the road between Jerusalem and the small town of Emmaus. The two were discussing the events of the last few days when a stranger joined them. He explained to them the scriptures and how it was ordained that the Christ would suffer before entering his glory. The two enjoyed his company so much that when they reached their destination they asked him to join them for supper. He agreed. When he took the bread, he blessed it and gave it to them. Then their eyes were opened and they recognized him as the risen Christ and he disappeared from their sight. Overjoyed, they rushed back to Jerusalem to tell the others. (Luke 24:13-35)

This story provides the background for the Emmaus Weekend, a program sponsored by the Upper Room. The Emmaus brochure puts it best: “The Walk to Emmaus is a three-day experience which takes a New Testament look at Christianity as a lifestyle. It is a highly structured weekend designed to strengthen and renew the faith of Christian people, and through them their families, congregations and the world in which they live. Emmaus is a combined effort of laity and clergy toward the renewal of the church.”
