GSOSA Mid-West Region Annual Summer Retreat 2010
by Adai Karuthalackal
On August 12, 2010 the MGSOSA Mid-West Region conducted its 3rd annual youth 3- Day- Retreat. This Year's retreat was held at the serene Illinois Beach Resort and Conference Center in Zion, IL. Several youth from the mid-west region arrived at the resort on Thursday afternoon. This summer retreat's theme was Romans 8: 2-4: "because through Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit of life set me free from the law of sin and death. For what the law was powerless to do in that it was weakened by the sinful nature, God did by sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful man to be a sin offering. And so he condemned sin in sinful man, in order that the righteous requirements of the law might be fully met in us, who do not live according to the sinful nature but according to the Spirit." It was a very nice selection on account of the fact that this theme truly spoke to most of the youth and laid the foundation to begin a new life with the Holy Spirit without the dominion of sin.
