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!”
