21
The Equal Commitment Rule
  • The Walk to Emmaus
  • Is not meant to be a divisive force, especially
    in marriages
  • Encourages the participation of both spouses
  • So
  • Present to both husband and wife
  • If one partner does not choose to attend,
    suggest that they pray about the decision for a
    period of time
  • Pray
  • If still disinterested, sponsor the other, as
    along as the other agrees O

22
Q A About Sponsorship
  • How many should I sponsor on a Walk?
  • Simple answer no more than two (2)
  • Sponsoring a too many persons may compromise your
    ability to be a good sponsor
  • Remember, it is not just a 72-hour weekend you
    are sponsoring, but through your pilgrims 4th
    Days O

23
Q A About Sponsorship
  • Can I work on a team and sponsor someone on the
    same weekend?
  • Not easily, but sometimes it is unavoidable
  • You will need help from others to handle those
    responsibilities outside the Conference Room
  • Be sure that the pilgrim knows that you have a
    job to do on the weekend O

24
Q A About Sponsorship
  • What about agape letters?
  • Goal is to have at least 12 letters from family
    members and close friends for the pilgrim
  • These letters
  • Should be positive and uplifting
  • Possibly relate a special moment the two have
    shared
  • You might consider writing a 4th day letter to be
    mailed to their home later as a surprise O

25
Q A About Sponsorship
  • What about providing my pilgrim gifts and
    special surprises during the weekend?
  • The message of Emmaus is that God loves each
    person with the same love God does not have
    favorites
  • A special gift will short-circuit this message
  • Any gifts or special surprises will be returned
    to the sponsor to be given at a later time
  • Sponsors can present these at the conclusion of
    the weekend on the way home O

26
In Conclusion
  • Remember
  • Good Sponsorship
  • is
  • The most important job of all!
