Yesterday, the day began with a celebration of Divine Liturgy at the Holy Cross Chapel and was followed by their last day of theology classes, which included some time for Q & As with the professors. Following the lectures, we took a tour and heard a talk at St. Mark’s Coptic Church.
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.
