Preparation Material

The celebration of the International Year of Youth in 1985 occasioned a youth conference in Cochin called ‘Jesus Youth ‘85’ and later that became the name of a wide and varied movement. Now we celebrate the Jubilee of that event, that name and that of a fast growing movement. The members of the movement are getting ready to come together for the Jubilee Conference to be held at the end of December 2010 and the following set of reflections are intended as a help for a meaningful participation in it. This could be read and reflected on personally and also read and discussed in cells and groups. In this Advent season, a revisiting of this text and questions, reading and reflecting related bible verses and praying as well as fervently interceding for a fruitful Conference will transform our participation into a grace filled pilgrimage.
