From the National Lay Director
Hello and good wishes to all of you.
The National Board met on the 20th February. Many things were discussed but one date was in the forefront of our thoughts for a lot of the meeting.
Saturday 18th June 2016
For it is on that Saturday that we will be meeting at the Side Door church in Grimsby, where God has carried out so much good work through Emmaus and Chrysalis, for a day of worship, celebration, food, and fellowship. We are being joined by the Associate Director of Walk to Emmaus, Kate Dickinson, who is coming over from Nashville to be with us.
There are more details in the newsletter.
I know that we have been tested, in many ways, during the past 21 years in Emmaus UK but so much good has come out of it that we just have to celebrate and pray for healing where it is needed.
The other reason that the Board had for thinking about 18th June was that, at sometime during that day, we will be holding a short AGM. A number of the officers on the National Board, myself included, reach the end of a term of office this August. This means that there needs to be elections for the vacancies. These vacancies will need to be filled if Emmaus is to continue in the UK beyond this 21st year. Details of the vacancies and the nomination process are in the newsletter.
Please read about the vacancies and prayerfully consider whether you are willing for your name to be put forward. Any member of the National Board will be happy to answer any queries that you may have.
Finally, I would ask for your prayers for those members of our Emmaus community in the South Central and North East regions. Both of those regions have difficulties at present which are restricting their activities. Please pray that people will come forward to help them to flourish again.
I hope that your spiritual journey through the rest of Lent is of great use and that you are able to celebrate Easter to the fullest.
