Memory of UNIFY2012

UNIFY2012 – all together

Dear Friend,

While your memory of Unify2012 may be fading, hopefully what the Holy Spirit started at that event lives on through you and the 130 other people who were part of it.

Videos of the sessions are now available on the Unify website and you can now watch the talks delivered by Joe Schmutz and Josh Heaston as well as the George Williams video , with other videos due soon. Please pass on the link to colleagues.

You may be wondering what happens next. Well, that is largely down to you as you seek to live out your faith in your YMCA. However, we have been discussing future plans and this is our thinking so far. We’re planning a second European Unify event for 2014 in Germany. If you would like to be involved in Unify 2014 or have comments to make, please contact Steve Bavington: email hidden; JavaScript is required.

Before then, during 2013 we’re encouraging ‘regional’ Unify gatherings – maybe one each in UK, Scandinavia and central Europe (that’s not to say others shouldn’t happen too). We hope this will help maintain the momentum started at Unify2012. If you are considering a regional Unify 2013 event, perhaps you could let us know.

Also during 2013, the 3rd Prague Festival is happening, and Unify has been invited to recruit and train a team young people to help facilitate the Christian Spiritual content of the festival. If you’re under 25 and would like to be part of that, please contact Joe:  email hidden; JavaScript is required.

You start to get the idea that Unify is more than an event – it’s more a brand that represents the Christian mission network and activity across European YMCAs. There are several other such networks, in Asia, South America and USA. Josh Heaston, who spoke at Unify2012, is helping organise a US Christian Mission event later this year and would welcome any European friends who are able to be part of that. Email Josh at email hidden; JavaScript is required.

That’s all for now folks.
