Well, we made our first month a productive one. Since launching February 26th, we’ve managed to attract hundreds of interested Christ-followers and curious others. Our website is now indexed with all the major search engines–Google, Yahoo!, MSN and Ask. We’ve been linked to by El Shaddai Emmaus CommunityIndy Tres Dias, INKY Via de Cristo and a Worldwide Cursillo directory. We’ve made treks across the blogosphere to leave encouraging messages on a number of different blogs (and received some kind words in return–see the comments below).

Additionally, we’ve updated the Kairos Retreat page (which someone took upon themselves to remove, so now there’s a small paragraph on this page) and added one for Tres Dias on Wikipedia. We’ve reached out to most of the 4th-day communities in Indiana, offering site links, palanca and other assistance.

About two weeks ago, we created MySpace and Facebook pages, as well. Anyone with an account should stop by and consider adding us as friends. We belong to a number of 4th-day community groups on both sites, which you can link to from our profile page(s).

We’ve been quite busy the last 30 days, and we’re happy to continue.

Our web hosting service is StartLogic and they are very inexpensive. And so far, they’ve provided adequate support. Any communities thinking of making a move, should look into them or contact me and I’ll walk you though the process. You should also offer your community a blog, like this one hosted by WordPress, so that people can stay connected, make comments/suggestions, leave palanca, etc. I can help there, too.

Well, that’s it for a one-month update. We hope to make many more connections over the coming months. If you have something to share, please leave a comment or e-mail me ( De Colores!

Hey, there! Glad you found us. We are, your online portal to Indiana’s 4th Day Renewal Communities. What does that mean, you ask? Well, we created a single online resource for Christian communities, most of whom find their origins in the Cursillo de Christiandad, such as Cursillo, Great Banquet, Kairos, Tres Dias, Walk To Emmaus, Via de Cristo and others. You’ll find links to all those communities on our site.

And what do we ask for in return? Just that you keep us posted on upcoming weekend dates and palanca/agape needs. Oh, and be sure to check back often.

We’ll keep you abreast of new communities as they come online, post weekend dates, update palanca/agape contacts and do our best to keep the information fresh and relevant. What I found in surfing the web for Christian Renewal Weekends is a bunch of disconnected sites with broken links and outdated information. Fortunately, many Indiana communities have vibrant sites with accurate information and you can find the majority of them listed here. If you don’t see a community listed, please bring it to my attention with a quick e-mail to

You can also submit an article for this blog and the website. E-mail submissions to me at the address above. What we’re looking for are general information stories about your community, upcoming weekends/events or related stories about the movement in general (i.e. Cursillo, Tres Dias, What’s most important is that we get to know the character of the community, so that when curious visitors find this site, they’ll know that the love of Christ is prevalent there.

We look forward to serving your information needs.
