would like to share and contribute to the News-Page of the Genfest 2012.
2012 – Let's Bridge' comes closer every day and we are getting more and
activity took place on the last weekend of April. We invited young people
from all over East Germany to a small Village close to Leipzig to be part of a
fantastic Let's-Bridge-Workshop-Weekend. Over 35 people took this chance
to build new and vital bridges throughout the different workshops such as dance
lessons, building instruments, film & photography and Hungarian dishes
for our dinner. Relaxing in the sun, football or swimming at the nearby
lake were some of the activities in the afternoon. On Saturday night, we expressed
our gratefulness for the weekend through a Taizé-Prayer in the chapel. On
Sunday we met in small groups and shared our experiences of building bridges in
our daily lives founded on some phrases of the Gospel. Each one of us
became a vital part of the bridge we built among us and we felt very much
connected to all the other vital bridges which are growing constantly towards
the Genfest 2012 in Budapest. See you all there!
