Did you know that Sabbath, September 19, is a very important day for nearly 2 million young people around the world? That’s because it is “World Pathfinder Day”—a day set aside each year to highlight young people who are involved in #Pathfinders. In this video, Pastor Ted Wilson will talk about what Pathfinders is, how it started, and the theme for World Pathfinder Day this year. The #Pathfinder Club has been an official component of the Seventh-day #Adventist Church’s youth ministry department since 1950, so this year they are celebrating 70 years of worldwide Pathfindering! A special online World Pathfinder Day program will be livestreamed worldwide this #Sabbath on the GC Youth Ministries Facebook page. For more information, visit youth.adventist.org In case you may not be familiar with Pathfinders, this Seventh-day Adventist youth organization is focused on young people 10 to 15 years old, and is filled with action, adventure, challenge and group activities, and has a strong spiritual component. It provides opportunities for the development of new attitudes and skills that produce personal growth, team spirit, and a sense of loyalty and respect for God, His Creation, and His Church. Perhaps one of the best-known activities of the club is the large international camporee held in OshKosh, Wisconsin, in the United States every five years. This year, the theme for the World Pathfinder Day is “Reconciled: Where I Belong” and focuses on the story of the welcoming father in the story of the Prodigal Son, with the key text of Luke 15:22, where the father welcomes his wayward son home. This son, who demanded his inheritance immediately and then wasted it very irresponsibly, decides, at last, to come home. We read the touching scene in Luke 15:18-24. Perhaps you have wandered or are tempted to wander away from Jesus. Maybe you feel you have gone too far to turn back now. This touching story also speaks to our hearts in welcoming back those who have gone astray. Do our hearts yearn for those who perhaps grew up in the Church—maybe they were even involved in Pathfinders and other youth activities—but have somehow lost their way? Do we spend time on our knees for these dear youth, pleading with the Lord to bring them back? Do we find ways to reach out to them, letting them know we care and that they are missed? And when they do return, do we welcome them with open arms? There is so much we can learn from this parable. Let us take to heart the wonderful theme of this year’s World Pathfinder Day— “Reconciled: Where I Belong.” With God. That is where everyone belongs! 00:00 Greeting: September 19 is a very important day
