Willow Creek Plus Youth Conference 2011 "Mind the Gap"


Of 6 to 8 May was Burg Wächter Castello in Düsseldorf the Willow Creek Youth Plus Congress held with the theme "Mind the Gap". With a group of 10 people we were there - besides about 3,500 other:

In the London Underground on all platforms, the warning: "Mind the gap" (Note the gap). Between platform and carriage so is sometimes extremely wide gaps into which the unwary passenger should just stumble not better.

Chasms, however, not only in the London Underground. Who walks with open eyes and hearts of our world sees immediately that in our society, more and more gaps gape: between people, generations, nations, rich and poor, man and the environment, word and deed, the church and society, heaven and earth. ..

Mind the gap! Watch the gap! Bridge the gap! The gaping holes! Perceive it! Get over it! Jesus has given proof: He is the conqueror. Because with him, and we can do something! But what does that mean in my daily life? What does Jesus want me to change? And how does he do it? These are the questions to which the Congress was known preachers (such as Rob Bell, Torsten lever) received. Challenging. Honestly. Critical. Concretely.

Included in the program were biblical foundations, motivating impulses, pastoral support, practical ideas and tools for employees, music, creativity, theater - and encounters that will remain safe long remembered.

During the three days we stayed in the Gospel Church Dusseldorf (Luisenstraße 51) and there met a warm welcome. In addition to providing the premises we were greeted in the morning with a large and varied breakfast and evening treated to a delicious, warm, hearty meal. We thank our brothers and sisters couple Pregla very much for the experience of being welcome.
