In March I will be doing another Kairos Retreat weekend at Angola State Prison. I am really looking forward to it. I thoroughly enjoy each of these retreats for many reasons.
1 It’s a chance to see God work. I’ve never attended one of these without seeing a great move of God.
2 It’s a chance to visit those in prison. That’s one of the things that separates the goats from the sheep. Me, I would prefer to be a sheep.
3 It’s a chance to be with friends. Some of my closest friends are the volunteers in Kairos and the prisoners at Angola who have gone through Kairos weekends in the past.
4 It’s a chance to minister with the whole church. Kairos draws its volunteers from different denominations and races. It’s a chance to act as the church as God intended, universally.
5 It’s a chance to minister. Sadly, Christianity is too often a spectator sport. Kairos allows us to actually minister, one-0n-one. The great commission isn’t just to pray for the ministry of others or to write checks. It’s a call TO GO.
Why not join me Saturday? We have our first training in Baton Rouge. You can ride with me and check it out. If it’s not for you, there’s no obligation. Call or text me (337-205-2353) if you are interested.
Here’s the schedule of training and the weekend.
Training will begin on January 31st and will continue February 7th, February 21st, February 28th and March 7th. Those are all Saturdays. We are back in Lafayette for supper. All training will be held at First United Methodist Church, room 104 in the lower level. Our Kairos retreat is March 12th – 15th. That’ a Thursday through Sunday.
