ca·ri·tas - ˈkariˌtas,ˈkäriˌtäs/Latin
Christian love of humankind; charity.
Charity in truth [ …] is the principal force behind the authentic development of every person and of all humanity. Love-caritas-is an extraordinary force which leads people to opt for courageous and generous engagement in the field of justice and peace… Pope Benedict XVI, Caritas in Veritate, “Charity in Truth” (2009)
In a world such as today, we need to pause, and learn the true discipleship of ourselves. Just the sound of “pause” brings joy to my own heart. So, in our youth ministry program we want to allow your children to find rest, God, in this “pause”. Let them journey with us to find God’s voice, whether it be vocal, meditation, or contemplation prayer. It’s time for a change, allowing the Holy Spirit to blow a gust of wind, a tremble earthquake under our feet, to shaken our hearts with a holy fear so we can each feel this “awakening” from within!
But don’t worry there will be plenty of fun activities and outings to bind our Godly friendships.
In Roman’s 12:2 “Do not model your behavior on the contemporary world, but let the renewing of your minds transform you, so that you may discern for yourselves what is the will of God -- what is good and acceptable and mature.…….”
“Being of this world but not in it”
Join us on this journey to understanding “pause” to hear God’s “voice” from within!
