Yesterday, the CrossRoaders had their last day of theology classes, which included some time for Q & As with the professors. Following the lectures, the participants had an opportunity to participate in a variety of activities during structured free time, as well as a chance to call home.
The participants then visited St. Mary’s Antiochian Church where they had a vespers service and listened to a talk by the parish priest.
Last evening was 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.
