The theme of International Youth Day 2021 is, “Transforming Food Systems: Youth Innovation for Human and Planetary Health,” with the aim of highlighting that the success of such a global effort will not be achieved without the meaningful participation of young people.
International Youth Day was observed in all our offices by following the special Order of Service prepared by BSI Jabalpur Auxiliary. Staff of respective Auxiliaries and the Central Office took active part in the Morning Prayer.
Prayer of thanksgiving was offered for the love and care for each other. A time to introspect was offered to confess our ignorance and be insensitive to the people around us. Scripture portion for reflection was chosen from 1 Corinthians 6:19-20. Staff in each of the offices shared their views and reflections from the above-mentioned Bible portion.
Intercessory Prayer was offered for the young people of our land and thanked God for the trees of the earth and all that they provide – wood for the houses we build, food that we eat, and air that we breathe.
It was a meaningful and a blessed special day.
