A Message from the Rector

John 1: 29-42 tells a story of the recognition and acceptance of Jesus as the Messiah, which appeals to me on two primary levels. Upon seeing Jesus coming toward him, John the Baptist proclaimed, “Look, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world!” This phrase perfectly captures the sacrificial nature of the love shown us through Christ. Even though I had been a Christian for many years and was actively involved in my church, it was on my own Emmaus weekend that I cast aside all remaining shields for the first time and allowed myself to experience the magnitude of Christ’s sacrifice for us and the overwhelming and unconditional love that God has for us at a deep emotional level. I was changed by that experience, and I remain convinced that sharing that grace and love with others is at the very heart of the Walk to Emmaus.
The passage from John goes on to tell us that the next day, as he saw Jesus passing by, John again proclaimed Him to be the Lamb of God. Upon hearing this, two of the disciples who were with John followed Jesus and spent the day in His company. One of those disciples was Andrew, brother of Simon Peter. Verses 41-42 read as follows: 41The first thing Andrew did was to find his brother Simon and tell him, “We have found the Messiah” (that is the Christ). 42 And he brought him to Jesus. The first thing Andrew did was go share the good news with his brother. He did not stop by home, have a bite to eat, or catch a nap. The first thing he did was find his brother and tell him about Jesus, and then he brought Simon Peter to Jesus. In fact, as the result of his actions in response to having discovered Christ, Andrew is sometimes described as the first Christian missionary. I believe this also represents the natural response to the Emmaus experience. We are inspired to take that missionary spirit back into our families, our churches, and our communities. We feel compelled to seek out our brothers and sisters and share the good news of the grace and love that we so richly experienced, and we seek to bring them to Christ. The love we felt is simply too wonderful not to share. While there are many names and images for Christ, I believe that none portray the sacrificial role he lived out for the forgiveness of our sins any better than Lamb of God.
God has assembled a wonderful team of servants for this weekend. We move forward in faith and confidence knowing that we are covered by your prayers and supported so well by your work. We know that even now, God is shaping the hearts of those Pilgrims who will be called to this weekend, and we ask you to continue in prayer for all those men whose names we do not yet know. Please return to the NCA Emmaus website frequently as we approach the weekend so that you may know the names of those men as they are posted to the website and pray for them each by name. We look forward to your continued support throughout the teaming process, and we look forward to seeing you and your Pilgrims in New Windsor.
