WE WANT TO EXPLORE HOW TO SHARE OUR FAITH BETTER, HOW TO BE PEOPLE WHO LIVE CHRISTIANLY AND GOSSIP THE GOSPEL
The European Huddle 2017
The Huddle…an event where brothers and sisters in Christ meet together from many nations and languages. Those countries represented were the United Kingdom, Portugal, Spain, Colombia, Mexico, France, Bolivia, Belgium, Netherlands, Poland, Czech Republic, Greece, Guatemala, Ukraine, Romania, South Africa, Germany, and Hungary. Christians from all these countries with one common love, Jesus Christ. This is the fourth year of the event. Every year new people in their 20’s and 30’s come and camp in the beautiful grounds of Guessens in Welwyn and have the opportunity to hear fine speakers like Pál Borzási and Lindsay Brown. It is a time of encouragement, up-building of one’s faith but it also gives a fresh perspective on mission, whether that is in full time ministry, or in secular work. All disciples have a mission and responsibility to spread the Gospel and to be salt in and light to the world.
If you like camping and being strengthened in your faith plus enjoy meeting new people, then the Huddle is the place to be. The event starts with setting up your tent (or just arriving while someone else sets one up!), a time of getting to know each other and then the welcome with the first talk followed by a bonfire and cooking marshmallows on it while drinking hot chocolate. Then on day two you awake to new friends in the form of ducks in the nearby river and a hearty breakfast. Morning worship, seminars and preaching happen throughout the day. As noted above we had some excellent speakers.
Pál from a church in Transylvania, Romania, is well known to supporters of EMF. He preached on Acts in two parts and took a seminar on migration, nationalism and land in the Bible. Lindsay is an evangelist at large to students and works for the International Federation of Evangelical Students. He spoke about mission in the modern world and said that we as Christians must “penetrate into society. Salt must soak into the heart.” He also said “Christians are to be radically different from the world.” All who attended The Huddle went away challenged, having followed the talks with much discussion in free time.
The two speakers were excellent and their enthusiasm was contagious. Pál Borzási’s voice went two octaves higher when excited about the gospel and Lindsay Brown, in pink or salmon trousers, spoke with a passionate heart about his Saviour’s gospel going out to the nations. He shared considerable experience of people and places keeping us totally engaged.
Both speakers are great examples of godly men and it was a privilege to hear them speak to us and answer our questions.
