Advent @ Emmaus

IMG_8319

Sharing reflections of hope, peace, joy and love during this season of Advent at Emmaus.

Each Sunday of Advent when we light the candles on the Advent wreath at Emmaus, we contemplate hope, peace, joy and love. But we contemplate this trusting that we do so because Christ has given his hope, peace, joy and love to the world. What might it look like for us to both share and watch for Christ’s very hope, peace, joy and love? How and where might God be calling us to share and receive the light of Christ in our midst this Advent? What if our primary Advent aim was truly to ‘prepare the way of the Lord!’ instead of simply ‘prepare the way of the turkey dinner’ or ‘prepare the way of the perfect tree’ or ‘prepare the way of the most expensive present’? My guess is that we’d be surprised about where and when opportunities to share and receive Advent blessings spring forth.

Join us throughout Advent on Sundays at 10:30 am.

 

 

Divine Renovation @ Emmaus

SATURDAY, DEC 9th  9am-noon

painter-1246619_1920

It’s time for our final session of Divine Renovation @ Emmaus!

Jesus said, “I have come that they may have life, and have it abundantly.”
Our hope for Emmaus and our personal lives is that we take Jesus up on this offer – the greatest offer ever given to humanity.

Divine Renovation is a time for Emmaus to engage in deep learning about: the Essence, Being, Life and Purpose of God’s church; what it means to be students or apprentices of Jesus; and what it means to be sent out into the world in mission.

We are blessed to have our own Mike Amirault facilitate this three session workshop. Mike obtained his Masters of Divinity from Wycliffe College and his love of Jesus is contagious. His willingness to share in deep Christian friendship and his desire for this community to grow in faith is a gift. I urge all of Emmaus to make the time to participate together in a bit of Divine Renovation!
