Update from Europe

Time for an update from my side of the world...

David Sörensen, a young Belgian designer, developed several excellent websites for spiritual seekers in cyberspace: Real Life, and Check out the God Tour.

Redesigned the Joel News website. Check out what God is doing worldwide.

On my blogsite Marc's Messages I wrote some interesting stuff on 'Jesus groups' and other expressions of organic church. Also available is a report of the DAWN Europe consultation on churchplanting in Europe.

I worked on an overview of what's happening in the youth prayer scene in Europe, as a preparation for our Connect Europe team meeting in The Hague last weekend. Over the weekend we prayed and talked about the emerging youth prayer movements in Europe. How can we bless what God is doing? For your information: of the 47 nations in Europe 7 have a national youth prayer movement, 27 have local/regional youth prayer initiatives and 13 have no youth prayer initiative at all. A lot of prayer stuff is happening, like young Catholics in the Netherlands who set apart a whole year to pray for the Holy Spirit.

Ronald van der Molen decided to close his weblog Dutch Traveller. Too bad! At least there's one person mourning...
