Gathering brings together almost 1,000 Lutheran, Anglican youth

Almost 1,000 youth from the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Canada (ELCIC) and the Anglican Church of Canada (ACC) came together in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island for the 2016 Canadian Lutheran Anglican Youth (CLAY), Gathering, August 17-21.

During the gathering, youth from across the country participated in fellowship, worship, Large Group Gatherings, morning "mash-ups" with Lutheran and Anglican Bishops, time for reflection, and aservant events that took them out into the community.

Throughout CLAY, speakers, a drama team, music, and ministry project built on the theme, "Not for Sale." This theme picks up the focus The Lutheran World Federation is using to commemorate the 500th anniversary of the Reformation, Liberated by God’s Grace: Salvation – Not for Sale, Creation – Not for Sale, Human Beings – Not for Sale. By gathering around this theme, CLAY joined in this historical commemoration and took up the challenge of living out faith in the world today.
