Youth Gathering Sunday

Sunday was an early morning of packing, checking out, and looking for parking close to Ford Field. We found our parking just a few blocks away, and were in place to enjoy all of the music and worship service. Worshipping and taking communion with 30,000 people, mostly youth, was indeed as awesome as past atendees had told us.

Included in the service were videos of youth in orange shirts working all over the city on Proclaim Justice Day, a moving video of a service organizer responding to the work that was done (approximately 20 minutes from the end of the 2:40 minute video), and - something many of the Grace youth mentioned- another incredible poem by Natasha T. Miller, which you can see around the -12 minute mark (12 minutes near the end) of the Sunday worship video here:

We made good time travelling home, many sleeping much of the way, but excited about what we want to share with you in the coming months.

Thank you once again for all your support.
