And He called a child to Himself and set him before them, and said, "Truly I say to you, unless you are converted and become like children, you will not enter the kingdom of heaven.

-Matthew 18:3-

  Every three years, the ELCA sponsors an event called The ELCA Youth Gathering.  The gathering is a sponsored mission for youth across the country, in their teenage years, to have the chance to travel to a major American city and perform community service and witness for their faith.  Now, as one can imagine, this event is a rather epic undertaking and giving the incredible planning and logistics required, is only done every three years with most recent done from July 15-19 2015.

Christ the King was fortunate to have three teenagers this time around who attended The Gathering:

Devin Ames

Jo(nathan) Day

Ben(jamin) Day

Two adult member chaperones also accompanied them on this mission:

Kathy Ames

James Day

Needless to say, this "journey" had a different influence upon each of the participants, their reflections can be viewed above  by following their individual links.
