Youth from the Church of the Holy Family (HFK) recently concluded a transformative four-part talk series titled Your Identity in Christ, marking a significant physical gathering since the end of the Movement Control Order (MCO). Engaging youth aged between 13 and 26, the series became a Friday night rendezvous fostering camaraderie and spiritual exploration.

The sessions were a blend of worship, icebreaking activities, and enlightening discussions centred on understanding one’s identity in the context of faith. Various songs of praise were sung in relation to the topics discussed each night giving a connection between knowledge and music, providing a deeper understanding and reflection.

Topics that were discussed were along the lines of temptations faced in the world. As youth, it is very challenging because of the limitless exposure to the outside world. It is important for one to have the ability to discern the many temptations in life and how to have a strong stand on one’s belief.

Another theme delved into the art of entrusting life’s burdens and hardships to Jesus, seeking solace and wisdom within the teachings of the Word. Life’s inevitable struggles, regardless of their scale, were acknowledged. Yet, amidst these trials, we are reminded of a constant presence, someone steadfastly walking alongside us, even when that assurance escapes our immediate thoughts.

A delightful insight about the event’s speakers and musicians: they were once vibrant youths of the parish themselves and have stayed connected throughout the years. Their collaborative effort and continued performances painted a compelling picture — a testament to unity despite diverse life journeys. Despite the divergent paths taken — marriage, parenthood, geographical distances — they showcased the possibility of future reunions, emphasising the timeless truth that age holds no sway when you share a bond as close as family with a group of friends.

With the year drawing to a close, the upcoming Christmas celebrations hold significance beyond the commemoration of Jesus’ birth. They symbolise a unifying spirit, fostering love and joy among the youth, their families, and the community. Reflecting on the essence of the festive season, the hope is to embody compassion, kindness, and goodwill throughout the year, inspired by the Christmas spirit.
