a missionary movement at the service of the church
Looking back to move ahead
During the Year of Jubilee everyone shall return home to his original family possession. Lev. 25:13. Last month, Alpha Pastoral Centre, Edakochi, South India became the venue for a gathering with a difference. From 3rd – 6th December 2009, more than 300 leaders from 18 countries across the world came together for the first ever Jesus Youth International Assembly. It was not just an effort to recapture the original spirit and the core inspirations of the movement, but to revisit it in the changed idiom and context of today’s world. Such a back-to-basics exercise was quite essential for the movement poised at the door step of the Jubilee.
