Area President 2018-19 Poul Henning Løwendahl Theme

Development and Diaconia

This is my theme, for the year 2018-19.

Diaconia is very important to me. In a world in which much agitation daily oppresses people, one must surely assume the task of helping the weak in society.

We have many homeless people all over the world, -Also in Denmark. These people are also our fellow human beings, and Especially in winter, I feel sorry to see other people lying in the open street, -  Parks, -Train stations and Elsewhere for the rest of the night.

I have the view that Y-Men have opportunities to help in the immediate area.

That's why I urged all five (5) regional leaders in the area of Europe to launch among the clubs in the region, one night in October 2018, invite homeless or refugees to a club night under the headline, "Give Us your story, -We will give you the food."

That's how my big hope that all five (5) regions leaders will take up this initiative and get this message across to all the presidents of the regions. Not for my sake, but for the homeless and for refugees.

This night at the club with the homeless or refugees could help give the Y-mens Club a new insight into the lives of other people – at the same time this night could provide homeless insight that there are people who will work for a better life for others.

All in all, this first proves that we as Christians have understood the message in the equation of the merciful Samaritan.

 

When this is finished, we have suddenly also developed the development of Y-Mens motion. - New development is needed in an organization you do not want to settle.
