KOTA KINABALU: Continuing its vision of leading teens closer to Christ, Life Teen Sacred Heart Cathedral Kota Kinabalu launched their new semester, themed “Glorify” here recently.
Led by new coordinator, Kimberly Rose Stephens-Tamayo, Life Teen unveiled the theme, which is also used by Life Teen International, in front of about 30 teens who were in attendance during its first Life Night at Sacred Heart Parish Centre Room F6, on 13 Feb 2016.
The Life Night started with praise and worship before the talk by Kimberly who explained the theme to the eager teens.
Sharing the reason behind the new theme, Kimberly said Life Teen SHCKK, which entered its 11th year of ministry, chose ‘Glorify” because it correlates with the message of the Year of Mercy.
“How do we glorify God, our merciful Father?
“It is by being merciful ourselves. Be merciful not only towards others but with ourselves too through our body, words, actions and through our suffering.
“The only way to show mercy is to know mercy first, that is by getting to know Jesus who is the ‘Face of Mercy’. The Year of Mercy is not only about mercy but also about forgiveness, repentance, conversion and love,” she said.
