Youth Gathering Saturday

Saturday is the day we spent at the Cobo Center, exploring our faith community. There were ropes courses, zip lines and bumper "boats", game tables, volleyball, ping pong, and other sports that, although fun and relaxing, required spending time with others.

There were booths with social justice themes, such as the water walk, and an area to respond to photos of social issues.

There were craft areas: making no-sew fleece hats to donate, peace puppets, an area to decorate our Gathering Bibles, and painting murals on boards that will be used to board up windows and doors on abandoned homes.

Some of the group waited to donate blood, others walked the candlelit prayer labyrinth, some took naps in the recharhing areas (we avaeraged 9-10 miles walking and 5-6 hours of sleep daily!).

We all enjoyed a BBQ lunch at Cobo Joes together, before returning to Cobo for the afternoon and of course, to Ford Field for evening worship.
