When you are on this three day Walk to Emmaus, you go on 15 Talks. If you click on the links below they will take you to my notes on each one of these talks. I was on the Walk to Emmaus in the Great Smoky Mountain Emmaus Community. Seated at the Table of Stephen in 1998. I wanted to share my notes from my walk with you. Maybe these notes can help anyone who is going to be a leader teaching these walks or even someone who just left their walk and want to dig dipper. I hope the can bless you and help you. Thanks!

I put the topics under a spoiler tag. Please only click it if you have been on your walk already and want to dig deeper or if you are a leader and wanted more notes on that topic.

The objective of Emmaus is to inspire, challenge, and equip the local church members for Christian action in their homes, churches, communities and places of work.  Emmaus lifts up a way for our grace-filled lives to be lived and shared with others. 1

    Steve Patterson, I love the fact that you love christian music, its funny because when my husband gets into my car all my stations are on the same station lol. KLOVE after 18 years of marriage he is finally going to church and is very much involved with it. He helps me with the music ministry and setting up all the equipment along with other people from our church. He and I never thought we would get here. I only have to say that the Lord is GOOD!!!! Amen

    I noticed at the bottom of the talk outlines there was a button for printing, I do not know much about building these kind of sites, but can a “Save File” type of button be placed on the page to just save it instead of Printing? It would be easier for me to be able to just open and read each one in a word processing or PDF application. Editable formats would be best for copy and paste capabilities. Thank you for putting these up so others might enjoy reading and studying to help them for their own talks. Gods Blessings to you and yours in the name of Jesus Christ!

    Hi Steve, This is a poem I wrote following my Walk to Emmaus in 1996. I do not mind if anyone wants to use this as long as it is printed as is in full. I often give this to someone who has just gone on a walk. I put it in with my letters to new Pilgrims. Please feel free to post and or copy. It’s called “My Encounter with Christ.” I usually use “Times New Roman” font “size 11” and “Bold” the type and use “center justification” to print. It makes a nice gift to a new pilgrim. A nice parchment paper to print it on is good and makes it suitable for framing.

    MY ENCOUNTER WITH CHRIST

    I had an encounter this weekend with my Lord
    He looked a little different somehow
    I actually didn’t recognize him for a while
    That is, until the breaking of the bread

    Sounds rather like the story from the gospel of Luke
    Where two men were walking to the town of Emmaus
    Jesus came up and walked along with them
    But, they didn’t recognize him either

    A group of us decided to go on this encounter together
    Most of us looking like we might have lost our best friend
    Similar perhaps to those men walking to Emmaus
    Who just a few days earlier had lost theirs

    Over the course of our encounter, we also were deep in conversation
    Not about the events of the past few days but about things like
    Priorities, Prevenient Grace and the Priesthood of all believers
    Justifying Grace, Life of Piety and Growth through Study

    We talked about Means of Grace, Christian Action
    Obstacles to Grace, Discipleship, and Changing our World
    We even talked about, Sanctifying Grace and the Body of Christ
    We also talked about Perseverance and the concept of Fourth Days.

    Many actions, mostly unseen, were happening at the same time
    Behind the scenes not unlike angels to the naked eye
    Prayers were being offered, as we passed this time together
    Fellow travelers praising God, knowing, smiling, reminiscing

    The floodgates of God’s love were opened wide before us
    And I became like the blind man who recovered his sight
    In my brokenness my burdens were lifted from me and I was healed
    And in that moment, I recognized him

    He had walked with me from the beginning
    He had sat around my table, and spoke to me from the podium
    He talked with me as we had our meals together
    He held my hand in prayers and shared in our discussions

    He taught us the songs we would sing for our meals
    He kept the coffee and the snacks flowing
    He was every fellow traveler who has ever gone on this encounter
    He was Jesus, and I recognized him by his love
