RETREAT REFLECTION JOURNAL
This journal book accompanies Know Chocolate for Lent that uses the growing and manufacturing processes of chocolate as a metaphor for the growing of our faith. The Know Chocolate program includes a retreat called A Chocolate Feast: Celebrating God's Goodness and this little book is perfect for participants' personal reflections and notes.
Know Chocolate for Lent provides the focus for a wide variety of seasonal experiences including: creating visuals, decorating worship centers, providing special holiday services, preaching sermons, reading Scripture, sharing children's messages, and making visual and concrete the goodness of God's gifts. It includes Adult Education sessions and a Women's Retreat called "A Chocolate Feast: Celebrating God's Goodness" (which could be used for any group). In addition to weekly worship helps, the book includes family devotions and activities.

Know Chocolate for Lent helps the entire congregation reflect on the significance of the gifts that they often take for granted-the gift of chocolate and the gift of faith. Through their participation, people of all ages will experience the connections between the growing process of chocolate and the growing process of being a Christian. They will connect God's gift of the rainforest and God's gift of the Church. In addition, they will understand that what they often take for granted-whether it is chocolate or faith-is much more satisfying when they know the story behind the traditions they celebrate.
