Rendez-vous 2020, the United Church's national youth and young adult gathering, was an event like no other―just as 2020 has been a year like no other. Rendez-vous 2020 Reimagined, held August 11‒14, was much like a face-to-face event in some ways; there were engaging keynote speakers, lively worship sessions, home groups, a service project, as well as workshops and spiritual practice sessions too numerous to list. Together, the participants shared bold faith, created brave space, and offered one another brazen grace―all from a safe distance. Read the full report.
