According to The Upper Room Emmaus website:
The walk to Emmaus is an experience of Christian spiritual renewal and formation that begins with a three-day short course in Christianity. It is an opportunity to meet Jesus Christ in a new way as God’s grace and love is revealed to you through other believers.
Following the Emmaus Walk, participants are encouraged to join Fourth Day groups.
Several Albuquerque women have been meeting as a Fourth Day Group since 2003 - 15 years of sharing their lives and bringing what Emmaus meant to them into the world. Two of the founding members who still lead the group are Gretchen Crowe and Debbie Dixon. I met with the group including Gretchen, Deb, Andrea Jones and Barbara McRae. There are 12 active women on their roster. The usual meeting attendance is 5-8 women on Thursdays. The age range is 40’s-70’s, except when college-aged daughters are in town over the summer. Gretchen said that when the 20-somethings attend, the conversation definitely pivots to helping younger women figure out how to "do life", but there is a lot of reciprocal learning too.
