What is Agape?
Agape is one of the Greek words translated into English as love. Christian writers have generally described agape as a form of love which is both unconditional and voluntary. Agape has been expounded on by many Christian writers in a specifically Christian context. C. S. Lewis, in his book The Four Loves, used agape to describe what he believed was the highest level of love known to humanity— a selfless love, a love that was passionately committed to the well-being of the other.
What does Agape Have to do with Chrysalis?
Chrysalis is a weekend retreat based off of Jesus’ love demonstrated for His people. Through out the weekend flight there will be many experiences to encounter God’s love. Due to the nature of the weekend, there really isn’t words to express what happens, or how God moves through you, but it’s unlike any other experience. Chrysalis is best described as a community that acts in accordance to how Jesus lived– self-less, generous, and most importantly accepting and loving.
