From the Lay Director

Grace enables faith and faith produces good works – this is from a sermon preached by Pastor Tony Arnold. I’m not sure if these are his words or someone else’s, but this is exactly what this community is all about.

Our faith produces these weekends that we know. We are starting E191 in a few days – that many weekends where on an average 30 people at least have been touched by grace, is not a minor accomplishment. Further, these pilgrims who walked, have gone out and touched others in their families, workplaces, churches and community.

This has been possible only through the faith and good works of you, the community – through teaming, community support and various other means, not the least of which is your prayer.

I have had the unique privilege of seeing this faith up close all this year – the community’s faith in action to support the teams & their training, the weekend events and hearing the pilgrims talk about their fourth day at closings and Ultreyas. We have also heard from several Fourth Day speakers of their faith walks over the year. (more)

From The Community Spiritual Director

Fall is finally here. The time for seasons to change is upon us. Genesis 8:22 tells us: “As long as the earth endures, seedtime and harvest, cold and heat, summer and winter, day and night, shall not cease.” We will always have seasons while earth endures.

I look at the foliage of the trees and I’m always in awe of the beautiful colors our God puts forth. How amazing God is to have the trees and shrubs turn colors while the seasons change. God thinks of every minute detail.

In our own personal lives, God thinks of every minute detail but we are unaware of those details. When our own seasons change, God is there in the midst. We don’t have to search because God is already there. It may not be what we want, when we want it, but God is there. God is omniscient, all-knowing. Why are we so eager for things to go our way? God has the whole picture. We need to trust and lean on the Creator; the One who knows all, who created life.

The seasons shall not cease and neither will the love of Jesus Christ. Jesus loves each and every one of us – forever! “Love is patient; love is kind; love is not envious or boastful or arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way;. . .It bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never ends.” 1 Corinthians 13:4-8

Let us all be thankful this season of fall and Thanksgiving. Let us love one another as Jesus loves us! (more)

Music Directors' Message

De Colores! “Sing a Hallelujah” as we enjoy these beautiful fall months! Full of JOY, Emmaus activities, love, and music!

Jerry Wills and several others of the Emmaus and Chrysalis community will rock the house leading tunes at Bethel in November. What a thrill to be a part of worship as they use their music talent to glorify Him and praise !

If you are interested in taking part in the NCAE or NCAC music, please reach out and let us know. We would love it!

From the Chrysalis Lay Director

This past month, the board has been working hard to updates our Weekend Manual and Team Selection Policy. We are also updating our Bylaws to coincide with the times. Because we have 35 changes, this past Ultreya, we passed a motion that allows the Chrysalis Board to the supply the community with an URL to view the changes and vote on them. We will also supply paper copies. Our goal is to have this ready by the January Ultreya.

Fly with Christ,

Erin Pendergast

Kairos Korner

Kairos #9 at Sussex 1 SP October 24th – 27th was a fantastic success. We had 38 graduates finish the entire weekend, which is common and very good. A lot of very interesting and very cool moments happened. One moment in particular was the “open mic” and the fact that only one resident came to the mic to give a testimony. This didn’t occur because everyone was shy or got nothing meaningful out of the weekend. It just so happened that the first resident to speak up was so heartfelt, meaningful, and powerfully on the mark that everyone literally had nothing left to add. This is how they showed him respect, by them not even trying to follow him they were sending him a grace filled message of respect for the powerful message he shared. I wish I could have recorded it for you all to hear.

I do have something to share however. One resident is a very talented Christian message rapper and he wanted to share is song, “Time” with you all. The significant meaning behind this song is that he is singing about his love for God, his church and worship. This is significant right now for him because he currently cannot attend church services any longer (it’s a challenge for everyone there). And so right now he’s incredibly thankful to have The Kairos Community to grow spiritually. I heard (and transcribed) the sung version, take my word for it, it was very good.

Thank You!

Fall has arrived and soon the Men of E-191 will be heading to the mountain. Please keep the team and future pilgrims in your prayers and show your love with remembering them with your love letters and fun gifts. You can drop them off at the Ultreya in October and please remember to label team or pilgrim and also the walk they are for. Please help with snacks and drinks for the weekend. Sign up at the November Ultreya to bring goodies for the weekends as well.

If you would like to decorate placemats please contact me and I will make arrangements to get them to you. If you have any questions please feel free to email me or contact me on Facebook.

With love,

Nicole Mosher

You Will Want to See This!

While we're not in the habit of distributing the large volume of internet-sourced Christian media, every now and then a message arises that is so clear and convincing that we feel compelled to share it.

Many of us have heard this story, but it bears repeating.

Watch and enjoy!
