Cherish Your Young People

2017. május 30., tags: starpoint, festival, Starpoint, youth

Glynis Williams, of the PCC, has a message for the RCH in light of the 500th Anniversary of the Reformation – young people are vital to the life of the church. The PCC and RCH have a long standing relationship, and one that has recently focused on the youth of the church as last year a group of HRC youth attended the Canada Youth gathering last summer. These same young people are now helping to run Starpoint – the RCH’s biannual youth festival.

In this year at Starpoint Reformed Youth Conference in Tata the theme was Trust. It is a very interesting question how you can approach and reach the trust in other persons, in yourself and in God.

Still trusting

2015. július 29., tags: youth, festival, starpoint

The development of our faith is never straightforward. Trust leads us to a bright space but we have to walk through dark tunnels. When everything is breaking down, we have to search for the small pieces of our heart which can still be used for something. We have to build our trust in God again and again - said Zoltán Sóskuti in his keynote speech at the Main Stage. 

The Charm of Three

The 2015 Starpoint Reformed Youth Festival could welcome many fresh participants, as well as real “veterans”, who came for the second or third time. One of the members of the international team is in line with the Hungarian rewinders: we talked with Inga Krisiukenaite (23) from Lithuania, who joined us for the third time.

Where is God? Where is He not?

2015. július 29., tags: starpoint, festival, youth

We have many disappointments in life, working like a big STOP sign for us. We have to stop for a minute to see what we have deeply in our souls. But if we disappointed in somebody or something, we don’t turn to God, but everything else especially when we disappointed in God. Today we had a really heavy theme at the morning keynote speech also presented by Zoltán Sóskuti.

A God Moment

In the crowd of more than 2,500 participants at the 2015 Starpoint Reformed Youth Conference one shouldn't be surprised to hear English, French, German or Korean words, as a group of international guests joined the programs. We found a silent bench for a short talk with Duncan Maclean (20) from the USA.

Prayer In Time of Heat

The air conditioning system of the car broke down while driving here. But not only in the car: in the whole world. This is what we, 2,500 people can feel in Tata, giddily in the burning sunshine. Tomorrow will be the hottest day, hotter than today, though today was much hotter than yesterday.

Can we live without Trust in God?

2015. július 29., tags: youth, festival, starpoint

Who would not be happy getting a great car or a house we don’t work and pay for? That would be amazing! But when it happens, after it happens we would be responsible for it. We actually have something we get as a gift. A gift from God. That is our world, our environment and the people among us. Can we make their trust stronger?

From Word To Water

On the second afternoon of the 2015 Starpoint Festival the team of international participants experienced the message of the Opening Worship of the Festival. Just like the Disciplines did on the Lake of Galilee, the team boarded a boat, and trusting the boatmen set out to discover the nearby Old Lake.

Ouverture

2015. július 28., tags: starpoint, festival, youth

Sometimes I find myself imagining background music to moments in my life. Just as if I were part of a movie: showing my travel pass in the underground, a determined act of potato peeling or a simple tooth washing, they all receive stronger emphasis when they are accompanied by music in my head.
