One of the innovative features of the 2010 World Youth Congress has been the Buzz Groups. At designated times delegates have been meeting in territorial groups to discuss prepared questions focussed on going deeper with God and looking forward to what will happen when they return home.

Each group prepared a summary of its discussions. The above image was created using Wordle to draw a word cloud of the main themes. The size of the word indicates its frequency in the discussions.

Prayer Focus

We invite soldiers, prayer groups, cadets, officers, retired officers – all people of prayer – to continue to pray for the delegates of the World Youth Convention, that they may have a safe journey home and that they may be inspired to greater and higher things as they serve in The Salvation Army throughout the world.
