As Rachel Sciretti, Associate Pastor for Youth at Hampton Baptist puts it, “In fall, the earth is in the process of a sort of death – going inward, into the ground, into the “tomb” – for protection against the extremes of winter, conditions that do not support life, to re-emerge in spring, renewed and transformed. We don’t freak out every fall and winter wondering what is going to happen. We have come to trust and rely on the cycle…that spring will come again. For most,change is not to be trusted. It is scary, unknown.” CBFVA’s Fall Retreat will focus on providing students with Spiritual Practices that students can use to help process change.
