2012 Theme: Atonement: Winning the Other Side
Whether we are perpetrators or victims, some things are just wrong and must be set right. Often this involves great humility and dedication to bridge the divide. Measuring our attempts at reparation against the ultimate reparation in Jesus Christ, this year's journey explores the courage of those willing to do what it takes to win others' confidence, love and salvation; the blessings of atonement.
