Northern Lights Emmaus

Upper Room Walk to Emmaus
Upper Room Walk to Emmaus

The Gospel of Luke tells the story of the resurrected Christ appearing to two men walking on the road between Jerusalem and the small town of Emmaus. The two were discussing the events of the last few days when a stranger joined them. He explained to them the scriptures and how it was ordained that the Christ would suffer before entering his glory. The two enjoyed his company so much that when they reached their destination they asked him to join them for supper. He agreed. When he took the bread, he blessed it and gave it to them. Then their eyes were opened and they recognized him as the risen Christ and he disappeared from their sight. Overjoyed, they rushed back to Jerusalem to tell the others. (Luke 24:13-35)

This story provides the background for the Emmaus Weekend, a program sponsored by the Upper Room. The Emmaus brochure puts it best: “The Walk to Emmaus is a three-day experience which takes a New Testament look at Christianity as a lifestyle. It is a highly structured weekend designed to strengthen and renew the faith of Christian people, and through them their families, congregations and the world in which they live. Emmaus is a combined effort of laity and clergy toward the renewal of the church.”

Northern Lights Emmaus COVID Policy for Gatherings, Candlelight, Walks & Flights

This policy is meant to address the most common objections and questions that community and team members as well as pilgrims may have about how our community is keeping our members safe against the COVID virus. Our community intends to follow guidelines setup by Butler County and the Ohio Dept. of Health and keep our best practices updated as the situation in our county changes. The guidelines we intend to follow at gatherings, team meetings and walks include:

  • Making the recommended surgical masks available to anyone who wishes to wear them without mandating or requiring mask wearing.
  • Providing bottles of hand sanitizer and making them available throughout the room being used. The use of hand sanitizer is highly recommended but we will not require its regular use.
  • The social distancing guidelines recommended by government agencies are woefully outdated (proposed by a German physician in the 1880’s and also in the 1920’s). Six foot distancing is not necessary unless someone has symptoms such as a fever and sneezing or coughing. However, we have grown accustomed to using social distancing and will provide adequate space between members, especially pilgrims during walks.
  • If someone is ill with a fever above 99 degrees Fahrenheit, has a bad cough, intestinal symptoms of sickness or is sneezing for any reason except seasonal allergies, they should see their doctor or at least stay home to avoid exposing others to possible infection.
  • While we agree with public health officials recommending COVID vaccination, we WILL NOT REQUIRE that team leaders, team members, pilgrims or community members be vaccinated before attending gatherings or walks. While vaccination is a good step toward better COVID immunity for most people, there are exceptions and we strongly feel that vaccination is a personal health choice for each individual. While there are Emmaus communities that require testing before an Emmaus Walk, that is not part of our policy.
