This past weekend I helped coordinate/attended a retreat for the student leaders and national workers of UCU. Its something that UCU does at the close of every year to talk about the events of the previous year and plan ahead for the following. It was a time of constant meetings, planning, praying, and organizing. Nevertheless, this retreat is one of the most important times of the year as we pray about what God has for us and the ways in which we can mature and reach more people through our service and ministry. One of the things we did was decide on the "Lema y Libro". In other words, the slogan and book of the bible for 2009.
In Spanish: Escoge, pues, la vida: Jesucristo
In English: Therefore, choose life: Jesus Christ (Deuteronomy 30:19)
The book of the Bible will be Deuteronomy
2009 is a huge year for UCU as we will be celebrating our 40th anniversary. (hence choosing Deuteronomy in symbolic reference with what the Israelites were going through after their 40 years in the desert and preparing to enter the promised land) Below are a couple of pictures and a silly little video (completely unedited) to show the hang-out times we had (which were FEW but FABULOUS!)
