Paul Powers on the importance of silence, solitude, and Sabbath.
"The most important task of spiritual leadership is hearing Jesus. Without his voice, our congregations are only hearing our voices. And that's not saying much. Discerning the voice of Jesus amidst the wordiness of our world is rarely a solitary act. It takes others. But not just any group of people—or even any Christian group of people for that matter—but a listening, unhurried, transforming community. Through LTI's Emmaus Spiritual Leadership Community, I received the gift of being surrounded with trusted voices that enabled me to hear the most trusted Voice when I needed to hear it most. These voices helped silence the blather of fear, so my wife and I could respond fearlessly to the Voice of Love. Our family, our future, our ministry will never be the same."

"The spiritual friendships I've formed though my involvement with Emmaus have been places of real encouragement—not only for me personally but also as a reminder for what God is doing in the hearts of other church leaders. One specific way that this community has encouraged me is by reminding me (and softly exhorting me!) to honestly and faithfully lean into who God is calling me to be, which has freed me up to more fully do what God is asking me to do. Words like freedom, grace, wisdom, rest, authenticity, and joy come to mind as I reflect back upon my experience with Emmaus."
Minister of Small Groups

"Emmaus helped to continually orient me to the presence of Christ during a long season of ministry transition. Retreats provided depth of both content and relationships, as well as time for reflection. Our gathering times of listening and reflecting were transformational! Shared meals were contagiously fun. The books and practices between retreats provided continuity so that the process of becoming aware of and responsive to the still, small voice of the Lord has had a fruitful impact on both my personal and professional life."
