"Shake: Rattled by the Radical," a gathering for youth from across Mennonite Church Canada, wrapped up this past Thursday.
Watch a five-and-a-half-minute video recapping the event below.
Held at Shekinah Retreat Centre, north of Waldheim, Sask., Shake took place from July 28 to Aug. 1.
More than 85 youth from Ontario, Manitoba, Saskatchwean and Alberta attended the gathering, accompanied by 22 sponsors and an additional 10 resource people and volunteers.
It was a meaningful event according to Kirsten Hamm-Epp, regional church minister for Mennonite Church Saskatchewan and one of Shake’s organizers.
Hamm-Epp said she felt “beyond encouraged by this group [of youth] and their thoughts, energy, wisdom, [and] love for God.”
