Walk to Emmaus

October 3, 2007 at 7:42 am 1 comment

I had an incredible time at the Walk to Emmaus this weekend. It was really interesting going back as an Assistant Spiritual Director on something that had such an incredible impact on my life several years ago. Believe it or not, I think this retreat really has some important connections with the sensibilities of the emerging movement. It is ecumenical, eucharistically focused, and embedded in faithful practices such as prayer. It also features experiential worship and table fellowship. Sounds emergent to me…heck we even have lectio divina. Perhaps these central practices and one of the reasons it has such a profound impact on the men and women who participate.

So, you might ask, after such a spiritually challenging and renewing weekend, what am I doing now? Working on Charge Conference stuff for my churches! Oh well, didn’t Jesus say, “The paperwork you’ll have with you always,” or something like that. Maybe I’m remembering it wrong!

    I count it a joy to have served with you on that Walk to Emmaus, my dear young friend and brother.

    I also count it a joy to prepare for Charge Conferences alongside you during this season of falling leaves (if it ever drops below the 90s in southeastern Oklahoma….) and football games, my dear young friend and brother.
