if you’re a facebooker, paul wang has a nice collection of photos from the cywc uploaded. here’s one of me, apparently in some kind of pain, or maybe whistling, while making announcements or something.
then, canadianchristianity.com posted a decent piece about the conference. a snippet:
The conference’s over-sold crowd of mostly 20- to 30-year-olds spilled through hallways, around conference booths, and into seminars and social events for 16 hours of conferencing each day. A combination of caffeine and adrenaline kept everyone going from the packed morning session with Bruxy Cavey to the dance ministry lessons in the evening. There was also some late night frolicking in Vancouver’s first haul of snow.
Storyline was the theme, woven throughout the conference with movie clips, performance art, music, images, dance and words each helping to communicate the theme of narrative — specifically the intersections God creates to impact the lives of youth.
“We are involved in changing a generation for eternity and inviting them to play a part in God’s story,” said Tic Long, conference emcee with Youth Specialties.
From the outset of the conference, participants were invited to make the weekend their own and, if need be, throw the schedule out the window. Speakers continually drew a link between the depth of freedom in youth workers’ lives and the lives of Canada’s youth.
