YOUTH AND CHILDREN'S PASTORS' WILDERNESS ENCOUNTER
In April five youth and children's pastors from four denominations enjoyed a long weekend in the Stanford area of the Overberg (Western Cape) on a wilderness retreat. The course was designed around the invitations of Christ in the Gospels to his disciples to go into the wilderness "to rest awhile…" The demands of working among children and youth in South Africa are extremely high. A Rocha's course gave pastors and children's workers the opportunity discover first hand, among the flamingoes, waterbirds and floral splendor of the Western Cape, Christ's intention to replenish and resource people through solitude and creation. In evaluation of their retreat the pastors expressed the need for accessing Bible resources and programme ideas for children and youth groups, to get kids out into the wilderness.
