Day 7 – July 2016
Yesterday the participants engaged in their third day of Theology and Scripture courses! They are learning so much and are asking many wonderful questions. The staff has been really impressed with their participation in discussion groups.
Following the lectures, we took our second adventure into downtown Boston where we had lunch and walked around Faneuil Hall, one of the oldest, most historic sites in the country!
Last evening, we ventured into Boston to visit St. Sava Serbian Orthodox Church where we celebrated Vespers.
Last evening was also the end of Stage 2, “Vocation and Christ.” The participants were again given the chance to journal and reflect on all they learned during Stage 2. Many of the CrossRoaders got up in front of their peers and shared their reflections. We closed the night by preparing for Stage 3, “Vocation and Christ in the Face of the Other.” They were challenged to answer the question, “who is my neighbor” and explored what it means to serve our neighbor. So much good learning, and we are thankful to be together in this wonderful community.
