What is Chrysalis?
Before it becomes a butterfly, a caterpillar goes through a growth stage during which it is called a "chrysalis." On the surface it may not look like much is happening, but the delicate chrysalis process changes the fuzzy caterpillar into an awesome butterfly with wings of intricate designs and intense colours. The chrysalis process symbolizes how Christ can transform you into something beyond your dreams. It happens when you grow beyond yourself, opening your life to Jesus’ power and love.
Chrysalis is the name that was chosen for the youth/young adult version of The Walk to Emmaus, its parent movement. The Emmaus movement is based on the story of the two followers who encountered the risen Christ on the road to Emmaus in Luke 24:13-35.
A Chrysalis Flight is a three day spiritual renewal event, which provides participants with an opportunity to grow in their faith. It is a time to experience Christian love and make new commitments. The focus will be on how, through the prayers and actions of other Christians, one can experience Jesus as a friend. The point is to inspire, challenge and equip you for a closer friendship with Christ and for Christian action at home, church, school, and community.
