Youth Forum Fall Gathering – 2015

YF fall

Are you a youth who is in High School, College, University or in the work force and no older than 19?  If so, this message is for you!

Youth Forum is pleased to offer our second fall event, a place of community and a place of faith for United Church youth.

We offer a place which creates an inclusive, diverse and safe community for youth in the name of Christ.  We provide a place for youth to explore their faith and to learn more about the United Church of Canada while sharing in music, worship and fun in a spirit filled community!

We are very excited to be able to share our love for God and our church community.   Come join us for the weekend and we’ll create that special and sacred space that we all know was YF 🙂

We are excited to have a special guest speaker for our event, Adam Bucko who is an Author/Speaker/Spiritual Activist.  Adam will present What’s Your Calling? Are You Living in Service of Compassion and Justice?    Great African American mystic and mentor to Martin Luther King Jr. Howard Thurman said “Don’t ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive, and go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.” True action comes from a place of our true aliveness in God, where we become the person we were born to become and act from our deepest calling. When we live as an expression of that aliveness and engage it in service of compassion and justice, we are truly working for a new world. In this retreat, Adam Bucko shares his own struggles and stories, stories of the homeless kids he has worked with, as well as lessons he has learned from his mentors. He proposes a set of practices that can help us touch the essence of our calling, build communities of friends that can affirm our callings for each other, and through prayer and heartful presence, build courage to live as expressions of our true aliveness in the world
