From Germany

Hi Guys,

We would like to share and contribute to the News-Page of the Genfest 2012.

'Genfest 2012 – Let's Bridge' comes closer every day and we are getting more and more excited.
Our latest activity were at 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 used the chance to build new vital bridges at different workshops such as dance lessons, building instrument s, film & photography and hungarian dishes for our dinner. Relaxing in the sun, football or swimming at the near by lake were some of the activities in the afternoon. At saturday night we gave the chance to show gratefulness of the weekend in form of 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. Every single one was part of the vital bridge we had constructed 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!

All the Best,
The Youth for a United World from East Germany.
