Make a friend.
Be a friend.
Bring a friend to Christ.
Most of us are familiar with this mantra. We might be able to remember opportunities when we have put it into action in our everyday relationships. We might even recall when someone loved us enough to introduce us to Jesus, either for the first time, or with a renewed vitality. Consider sponsoring a friend for this upcoming Cursillo weekend. The dates are October 24-27.
Talk to God about your friend.
Talk to the clergy in your parish about your friend.
Part of the work of the Cursillo weekend retreat is giving the participants a crash course in receiving. The vitality of our work depends on reckless, lavish, and excessive giving. We barely scratch the surface of the deep, broad, and high love of God, but the idea is to encourage the practice of depending on that grace. While the bounty of the love of Christ will never run out, we cannot facilitate learning to receive unless we are willing to give.
Consider giving to Tennessee Episcopal Cursillo.
The deadline for registration is September 24th.
Looking forward to seeing you and your friend on the mountain!
