NCYC14 – #youryurora
Wondering what people enjoyed or were challenged about at NCYC14.
I have had some time to recover from Yurora (NCYC14) where in January almost a thousand young people from around the UCA gathered.
The festival style allowed freedom of choice in a new way for this event. People really had to shape the program and make the event #youryurora.
We ran Cafe Praxis with Alt Worship, Bibles studies, Q&As, Lightning Talks, Open Mics, Youth Ministry workshop etc etc with almost fifty awesome people involved.
Two highlights from my end were:
Alt worship led brilliantly by Daz, Holly & Aimee. Taking children’s books and daily themes into creative arty alt worship goodness. Visit Digital Orthodoxy to steal more of their ideas
The Q&As on Discipleship & Justice with justice & activists friends, one with UCA National Leaders/Elders and one with the Moderators. These were significant opportunities to hear the passions from various leaders in our movement and ask them questions. Thanks panel members it was important
I would love to hear stories about #youryurora post your experiences and reflection on morepraxis in the comments below.
