Save the Date! Senior Friends Gathering in Bogotá
Calling all Senior Friends of the World Student Christian Federation
Save the Date!
Following the success of the Senior Friends Gathering held alongside WSCF's 34th General Assembly in 2008, WSCF invites its Senior Friends (alumni of any age) to a Senior Friends Gathering to be held in Bogotá, Colombia from 16-20 August 2014 in conjunction with WSCF's 35th General Assembly.
The Senior Friends will have the opportunity to work together to define plans for deepened engagement of Senior Friends in the on-going life of the Federation and to engage inter-generationally in the Assembly's discussions on the WSCF's life and work.
A concept note with further information and details and registration forms will follow shortly.
Let us know if you would be interested in helping in the planning, and please share this information with WSCF Senior Friends who might be interested in participating.
I look forward to hearing from you, and, I hope, to meeting you in Bogotá.

International Women's Day 2014 liturgy
The International Women’s Day is already on the doorstep, on March 8th. However, the whole month of March has been dedicated to commemorate the struggle of the courageous women who fought for equality, justice and peace.
We are pleased to share with you this liturgical service and we’d like to invite you or support your preparation in celebrating the International Women’s Day this year.
The document of the service we have prepared which has mentioned some life stories of women and girl in our region (among them are Ms. Malala Yousafzai, the Rev. Eggoni Pusphalalitha, Mrs. Liu Xia, Ms. Erwiana Sulistyaningsih) reflecting their struggle towards justice and equality. But you are invited to remember and mention many other names or women from your context through this prayer service (during the intercessory prayer).
At the end of the service please feel free to perform the dance “Break the Chains” introduced by One Billion Rising for Justice 2014 movement. The music (mp3 format) for this dance is attached as well.
May this service encourage us all to remember the contribution women have made for better society of all.
We are looking forward to receive your response and story of IWD commemoration.
If you require a Liturgy please contact me at the National Office.
