This past weekend we headed to B'ham to celebrate my brother-in-law's 30th birthday and to meet about Chrysalis. Unfortunately, my memory card messed up on my camera. Therefore, I don't have any pictures from the weekend, until my sister-in-law sends me them:)
Happy Birthday, Jody! We had so much fun celebrating with you!!
Now...on to, what is Chrysalis? Jason and I will be helping with the Men's retreat coming up in May. Jody, the 30 year old, will be the director that weekend. I can't wait to see what God has in store for the men on the retreat, as well as the helpers involved.
What Is Chrysalis?
Chrysalis is the growth stage between caterpillars and butterflies. While on the outside it may look like nothing is happening. However, on the inside, a very unique crafted change is taking place. This change, from a caterpillar into a beautiful butterfly symbolizes that through dying of the self, Christ can transform us into new people. Jesus Christ is able to change, re-do, or delete our old selves into a brand new person! However, we must be willing and open in order for Jesus to come into our lives and re-create this new person.
The name Chrysalis was chosen for the Young Adult Walk to Emmaus because it represents a growth of faith in the lives of college students and other young adults. This spiritual growth is vital to help the transformation between teens and adulthood.
Chrysalis is a three-day spiritual renewal retreat that gives participants the opportunity to learn more about their faith and experience Christ's love and grace in a new and exciting way. It also provides the chance to make new friends and establish new commitments in their spiritual journey.
