Our first full day of CrossRoad began by attending the Divine Liturgy together at Holy Apostles Greek Orthodox Church in Westchester, IL. We shared brunch and were able to engage with the many CrossRoad alumni from their community!
Then we made our way to the Challenge Course at the Lincoln Marsh where we participated in some great team-building activities through challenging high and low ropes courses. We joined in activities that allowed us to become comfortable with new ideas and surroundings as well as open up and put trust in our new friendships.
We ended our evening by unpacking the meaning of vocation in a session lead by one of directors, Anna Kallis! The CrossRoaders are invited to consider vocation as “your unique and ongoing response to Christ’s call to love God with heart, soul, mind, and strength, and to love your neighbor as yourself.” The participants were then asked to reflect on this perspective and ask themselves the question, “Who am I?”
All is quiet at North Park, as our first full day comes to an end. We pray for continued blessings for the remainder of our week together!
