Youth Trek Waterton 2022: Recognizing the Divine in Others

        First Third Ministry, youth and youth leaders from Chinook Winds Regional Council gathered at Waterton United Church for the first-ever regional YouthTrek on October 28-30, 2022. Youth and leaders from Coaldale, Lethbridge, Okotoks, Aldersyde, Drumheller and Calgary gathered to explore the Road to Emmaus.
       On our trek, we explored the different ways we experience the life and ministry of Jesus through our different senses, the ways in which we recognize the divine in others, how we can welcome the stranger in our ministries, and how we can build a beloved community for youth. We received spiritual and reconciliation wisdom from Rev. Tony Snow, Chinook Winds Indigenous Ministries Lead, explored living history at Head-Smashed-In Buffalo Jump and worshipped together as regional youth.
      We’re very grateful to the folks at Waterton United Church for their hospitality, and we want to extend our thanks to all the leaders and participants who made this weekend possible.
