TOGETHER ON THE ROAD TO EMMAUS
On the day of Pentecost we inaugurated this diocesan project, “Together on the road to Emmaus” Jesus invites us to embark on a journey, to walk with him, to engage with him on a pilgrimage.
This pilgrimage is to enable our diocese to become:
- A Welcoming Church
- A Teaching & Proclaiming Church
- A Loving Church
Our Church is all of these already, however there is a need to breathe new life, though the Holy Spirit, to countenance the issues which we face in this day and age.
According to the author of the book “Travelling in” Monica Furlong, “The religious person” is “somebody who believes that life consists of travelling on a road” the non-religious person is one who believes there is no road to follow”.
« I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. »
Our walk with God is not limited to knowledge of the Bible, but includes living a proactive life. The first description of the Christian according to the New Testament is of someone who follows the way.
