CANON OF THE EMMAUS TEAM
I am a member of an Emmaus Team; therefore,
I am only one part of a complete being!
I am an imperfect earthen vessel, and
I am here in a servant’s role!
I will serve in humility and gratitude for the
opportunity to be here, and will remember that the
Holy Spirit calls for my love, patience, kindness,
gentleness and self-control in all things!
I will pray for submission to the Spirit of this
Weekend and for strength and commitment to be God’s
person rather than my own person during these three days!
I will remember that I am here only as an instrument
through which God can work to renew His Church-
I am here only by God’s grace;
I am here only so that He might do His
mighty acts through me – not because of me!
I will lift up other members of the team and candidates
In prayer and ask our Lord to strengthen them and reveal
Himself to them in wondrous ways!
I will not overstate or overemphasize my role
during these three days by any word or deed-
I will not glorify myself; I will not glorify any other
member of this team, nor allow another to glorify me!
I will use “I” as little as possible during these
three days, and will remember that all others are the
main reason for my presence and my prayers!
I will remember at all times that I am less important
than any other person on this weekend-
In all things, I will accept and be obedient to
the authority and discipline under which I serve!
I have no authority: I have no responsibility except to
be obedient to the Church and totally responsive to the
ministry of the Holy Spirit!
Whatever passions and excitement seize me,
I will express through joyful praise to the Father,
my Lord Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit!
I will give God all the glory for anything
and everything that occurs on this weekend.
I will raise my voice only in praise of Him and will
bow my head in reverence and submission to Him!
I am only a servant; but God can use me more powerfully
in this role than in any other that I might choose!
I am an imperfect earthen vessel, and
am blessed to be here as a servant!
I am a member of an Emmaus Team;
In all things this weekend
I shall pray, “not I, but Christ!”
