We are excited to announce the theme for the 2013 National LCMS Youth Gathering to be held July 1-5 in San Antonio. “Live Love(d)” is the theme based on I John 4:9:
This is how God showed his love among us:
He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him. (NIV)
The theme will provide the thematic and theological focus for the 2013 Gathering program. For more details about the theme and theme development process read this article on Reporter Onlinehere.
Resources will be created in the coming months around the theme and I John and will be made available on the Gathering Web site www.lcmsgathering.com. This will include:
·The theological paper
·Community Life resources
The Web site is also the location for additional updates and information about the Gathering. Information and registration updates will begin in spring 2011.
Thanks again for your support and care for youth in your congregations and communities. We deeply appreciate the feedback you provided through various surveys. We hope to see you in San Antonio in 2013!
