MAC 2017 could well be a pivotal time for the Affiliate Movement and for us as individual participants. In addition to being a time to come together again since MAC 2014 (always an inspirational moment) this Conference is the first to take place outside the U.S. in a beautiful setting (Verbo Encarnado) within a country and people that have a great deal to share with and teach all of us. Just stepping into this rich culture would alone be an exciting and worthwhile adventure. What makes MAC 2017 even more pivotal for the movement and for each of us, is the very thoughtful - carefully organized - fun-filled - faith-centered and engaging development of theme and schedule that the Guatemalan Conference Committee (GCC) has prepared.
The Theme is Buen Vivir - Living Life to the Full... In whatever space we as an Affiliate movement or as individuals find ourselves today, this is always something we need to bring to mind and heart.
Here are some of the specific goals developed and translated by the GCC:
- To share as a community our accomplishments in mission.
- To ger out of our routine and see clearly our future.
- To fight the paralization of hope.
- To increase our faith in human beings.
- To create a communitarian joy to achieve brotherhood and sisterhood.
- To help us to change our hearts, minds, souls and power structures and create a road of light and hope with the disenfranchised.
