It’s Not Easy…

2 Corinthians 9:15

Thanks be to God for his indescribable gift!

…to describe what goes on during the three days of the Way of Christ.

This is not a simple way out, but rather, is based on an understanding that the printed word is often a poor medium to communicate experience.

For example, a stained-glass window seen from outside appears dull and lackluster. From inside, however, the impression is entirely different and the beauty, which was not apparent from outside now fills our senses. We can attempt to describe what we see and feel, but this second-hand experience is very far from the real thing.

This is somewhat akin to the Way of Christ experience which can be described but which must be lived to be appreciated..

There is more, much more. The Way of Christ experience is fundamentally mysterious because it deals with the most fundamental of all mysteries, which is God.

Each of us sees the Way of Christ through individual eyes and experiences it through the different lenses of our life experiences. Through these filters God’s grace makes its own, unique and unexplainable way to our hearts

Finally, there is a much more mundane reason for not wishing to divulge the entire contents of the weekend. There are a few surprises along the way – pleasant surprises, which bring joy and spontaneity to the experience.
