an incredible experience. It is a God-given time filled with meaning and choice.
How the retreat touches each person is different, but what I know for sure
about Kairos is that it always comes as the right time in someones life;
whether they know it or not. There is a reason why someone decides to go on
Kairos when they do. Watching the students discover their own reason and
purpose for the weekend was an incredible experience for me. As the head
Resident Minister leading the Kairos Retreat it was amazing to watch the
transformation in students throughout the weekend and see how they were
overwhelmed with feelings of joy and love.
Living the Fourth
is about living out a time of possibility, change, and justice in our own
lives. Working with the student leaders throughout the semester and seeing
their hard work play out over the course of the weekend was really inspiring.
Throughout the weekend we tackled hard questions about identity, our
relationships with God, ourselves and others, and sought out answers about our
faith. We made new friends, we found some peace and we cried till we laughed
and we laughed until we cried. It was an incredible Kairos weekend and I
want to remind all the retreatants to let your sweet hearts be your compass
when your lost. Live the Fourth!"
