During the coming months let us “embrace a vibrant vision” … the vision that we felt during and following our own Emmaus Walk. That vision is essential to return our community to vibrancy. I am reminded of a passage in Scripture which reads:
For this reason, I kneel before the Father, from whom every family in heaven and on earth derives its name. I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge – that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God. Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever! Amen.Ephesians 3:14-21
Through the Holy Spirit, we have the power to reignite our community, and it is the responsibility of each of us to do our part in making this happen. God has used our Coastal Carolina Emmaus Community to work miracles in our churches and in our communities. Let us join together and spring forth a new life into our Coastal Carolina Emmaus Community through Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior.
