So far, we’ve found nearly 20 of you there, but we know there are many more Pilgrims and Pescadores out there! If you’ve friended us there, or if you’re a follower of this blog, please send a link or friend suggestion to those in your community.

Share YOUR Weekend or 4th Day Experience

April 4, 2008

If you’ve just made a weekend, served a weekend or remember your renewal retreat as if it was yesterday, then we want to hear from you!

The conversation is open to any cursillistas, pilgrims or pescadores, so come and share your story. Go down to the comments section and post your weekend or 4th day experience. You don’t need a login or WordPress account, just your name and an e-mail address (which won’t be posted, by the way).

Whether you made Cursillo, Great Banquet, Kairos Outside, Tres Dias, Via de Cristo, Walk to Emmaus or any other type of Christian Renewal weekend, we want to hear your story–good, bad or indifferent. And if you want to become a regular contributor to this blog, BY ALL MEANS, send me an e-mail.

I’d like for everyone to start their post with this standard “rank-and-serial” intro (i.e. “Chris Doyle, North Florida Tres Dias #1, Table of John), then just tell us what’s on your mind. If you’d like, you can just link us to your blog, but do so in the comments section below. Okay, who’s going to start the convo?

Let’s see how far we’ve come!

March 29, 2008

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 IndyRetreats.org 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 (info@indyretreats.org). De Colores!

Share your 4th Day experience

March 8, 2008

Woohoo! Our 2nd blog post!

I want to open the conversation to as many cursillistas, pilgrims and pescadores as possible, so come and share your story. Go down to the comments section and post your weekend or 4th day experience. You don’t need a login or WordPress account, just your name and an e-mail address (which won’t be posted, by the way).

Whether you made Cursillo, Great Banquet, Kairos Outside, Tres Dias, Via de Cristo, Walk to Emmaus or any other type of Christian Renewal weekend, we want to hear your story–good, bad or indifferent. And if you want to become a regular contributor to this blog, BY ALL MEANS, send me an e-mail.

We’re also looking for information on your particular community, whether you live in Evansville, Indy or Shipshewana (sp?). We’d like to feature at least one Indiana 4th day community a month on this blog and our website–IndyRetreats.org.

If you want to know a little about my story, you can click here (link to another blog) or simply go to the “Meet your host” link to the right. In summary, I’m a 20-year Pescadore in the Tres Dias movement–North Florida Tres Dias #1, Table of John.

I’d like for everyone to start their post with this standard “rank-and-serial” intro, then just tell us what’s on your mind. If you’d like, you can just link us to your blog, but do so in the comments section below. Okay, who’s going to start the convo?

WELCOME TO INDYRETREATS.ORG

February 26, 2008

Hey, there! Glad you found us. We are IndyRetreats.org, 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 info@indyretreats.org.

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, et.al.). 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.

DeColores,

Chris Doyle
