Over 100 youths attended the first United Church Young Adults Action Movement (UCYAAM) e-conference, which was themed “Mobilized to Act: For Such a Time as This” based on the biblical story of Esther and the talents. Joining their opening session was the United Church in Jamaica and the Cayman Islands (UCJCI) General Secretary Rev. Norbert Stephens, who directed them to be “clear in their direction, confident in their desires, committed to their decisions, corrected by their defeats, and conscious of God’s dependability.”
Over four days in mid-August, Bible study sessions challenged them to think about and use their talents to serve, to be advocates, to stand up for justice when opportunities arise, and to be mentored by the right people, while presenters from varied backgrounds equipped them in the areas of church ministry and the workplace.
Rounding up a time of spiritual nourishment and inspiration was the 48th Annual General Meeting and Elections, where the Synodical Executive body for 2020-2022 was elected.
