SPRING WALKS HAVE BEEN SUSPENDED
February 18, 2017
Greetings to you, our Emmaus family:
Your Emmaus Board of representatives met today. One topic of business we discussed was whether to go forward with the spring walks. After much PRAYER, conversing, exchanging ideas, hearing from the two lay directors and getting information from our registrar, the members of the board that were present, have decided unanimously to suspend Walks #33 & #34 until further notice.
Our feeling is that we have strayed away from holding quality walks. We seem to be more interested in scrambling to get enough applications in to make the minimum number to hold a walk, which is not what we want to do. We want to have a long list of excited pilgrims, eager to discover the new experiences that happen on “Walk to Emmaus” walks.
To do this we need the community to help. We need to be sending in applications each month. Not just as we get close to a walk, scrambling to get enough applications in to hold a walk. We feel that is not what God wants us to do. We need to be committed to getting 40, 50, 60 or more applications in to the registrar. That will let us know we need to hold a walk.
We appreciate your understanding in this matter. This decision was not taken lightly. We appreciate any feedback that you would like to give to myself or any board member. But please understand this decision has been made.
We are moving forward. An announcement will be coming soon about scheduling a Gathering for March. We have a lot of new information coming in the March Newsletter. Your Board is working on improving our community.
We thank you for your prayers.
