The theme for this years primary festival was ‘The Unknown’.

We find in the scriptures many examples of rains and storms. In his parable, Jesus describes a house, built on rock that stands firm against the storm. Jesus explains that the rain will come- we all face our own unknown storms in life- but that by rooting ourselves in Jesus’ teaching, we are able to face whatever joys or challenges come our way.

This year’s festival celebrated the power of God’s love throughout history. From the beginning of creation, God has been with his people and through Jesus, God became flesh and walked among them.  We reflected on what that meant for us today: how we know that God is in the unexpected, unknown and unfortunate events, even when we feel overwhelmed or disappointed?

We had a fantastic day and left the youth village knowing we are all part of God’s story.
