Thank you for the Emmaus Fellows Retreat. It was a refreshing time for me. I so appreciate your intentionality in providing this and other resources for the soul care of leaders like myself. It's very much needed. This COVID season has involved endless Zoom meetings and other web events, all intended to help us carry on the work of ministry. I am grateful for those resources. However, no one is really ministering to our inner life as does LTI.

While Selah is a training program for spiritual directors, truthfully it is so much more. Selah is really a community, a diverse fellowship of brothers and sisters in Christ from various backgrounds and walks of life, some in full-time ministry, others like myself who are lay leaders - who journey together toward the very heart of God the Father, brotherhood with Jesus the son and the continual deepening presence of the indwelling Holy Spirit. My training with Selah has equipped me well as a spiritual director to companion others in their own spiritual formation. Yet the essence of Selah, far beyond books, study, the teaching we received, even practicing with others in my cohort was a result of my own Selah journey into life together with the Trinity - the ongoing, transforming work of experiencing the love, grace, mercy and presence of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

I was unfamiliar with the contemplative movement before Emmaus. Learning to be still before the Lord and take time with Him as the highest call upon my life, brought a new sense of freedom. Prior to understanding some of the contemplative thought that was so well taught through Emmaus, I had unknowingly bought into the lie that the quality of our spiritual life had to do with the busyness of the soul, rather than resting in the Lord and letting Him lead. My pastoral ministry and impact on others has grown greatly through my experience with Emmaus. Now that I am more settled in myself with Christ, I am leading from a calmness from the Lord, rather than the frenzy that led often to the tyranny of the urgent. I have grown in my empathy, prayer life, listening and overall love for God's church through my time with Emmaus. Thank you!
