When we look back to the creation story, way back in Genesis, God makes a rule for Adam and Eve. Don’t eat the fruit of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. Adam and Eve know the stakes. To eat the fruit means death. And yet, they still eat . . . and they still keep breathing. Death was more than blood pumping through their veins. Death was separation from God. Adam and Eve found that out quickly as they were jettisoned from the garden and life became difficult.
That is the state of man. Death. It is really not that hard to see. How many people do you encounter on a daily basis who are not really living? You see it in the eyes of someone who is just lethargic, given up on life and you see it in the lives of the people you know who are just chasing after stuff. The next gadget, the latest style. You see it in people who jump from relationship to relationship searching for something that will make them feel whole.
The things is, Christ came so that we might have life. He came that we might be restored to the Father through Him. And not just the life of Adam and Eve. Christ came that we might have more. He came that we might have a share in Him and His divine person. That we would be made children of the Father, members of the body. He came that we might have life abundantly! More than even Adam and Eve had in the garden. We have been given more.
This year’s Revolution Conference will be a celebration of the Life we have been given. Expect incredible times of worship, beautiful experiences of Mass, Expect to dive deep into the Sacramental life of the Church. Expect a lot, because this is a weekend to celebrate what our God has done for and is doing for Us. As St. Ireneaus said, “the Glory of God is man fully alive!”
This weekend we are planning to give God all the Glory!
The Revolution Conference will take place at the Creekside Camp Center at Forest Home
