About the musical

Job - a righteous man has done everything right during his life. But suddenly he´s confronted with unbearable pain and suffering. How can God let all of this happen? In a dialoge of doubt and faith Hiob experiences God´s unique and loving way of seeing the world and finds healing in unexpected places.

"What IF?"

Moving along a tangent of trust

First camp with young adults in Austria

September 2020


A bunch of young, motivated people came together to an idyllic place in Burgenland Austria.

TO BE LOUD AND TO BE STILL

We found the ideal setting for young people to connect with others in this remote campsite in the woods of Austria. The perfect place to engage in conversations, rest and recharge.

Online Seminar, international

Spring 2020


The first Webinar was held in spring. The theme of the seven-part series: Looking at christian faith from a fresh perspective. We invited different speakers from the field of theology to challenge our thinking. Some of them used art and songs to open our minds and heart.

Deepa participated in this unique exchange,

"It was an unexpected life changing experience for me. My personal favourite topic was on human suffering and death because I had a lot of doubts about it. The Upper room used arts as a means to open up our minds."

The good news of Job

"Katholisches Bildungswerk"

Austria, März 2020


The "good news of Job"- does that even exist? Yes, and we love to share the story!

...to share about our wonderful experiences in north-east India. About the touching stories of the children and youth who we had the chance to meet and about how the story of Job speeks to them in a very special way. But not not only to them, also to us the story brings a lot of encouragement and hope. Planned with the songs and dances of the musical, we were able to share the "good news of Job" in Hafnerbach, Austria in early March. It was such a great joy to share the stories which touched us so much and motivate us.

Plant seeds & give trees room to grow

School project in Northeast India

Februar 2020


In February a team of five of us from Austria and India headed to Diphu, north-east India, to take up the challenge a second time: to rehearse and perform the musical JOB in five days. "JOB - where are you father?", which was specifically written and composed for a camp in summer 2019 and recorded now with instruments. We were thrilled to see the unique way in which the biblical figure Job was to be brought to life this time. The performance took place at a school in the indian state Assam with the help of 75 camp participants in the age of two to sixteen years.

The joy of the gospel

Refresher Meeting in India

Februar 2o20


Flipping to the first bookmark of the year 2020, we come to our refresher meet held in February. Within this 2-day meet we coned our thinking, focusing wholly on Pope Francis and 'The Joy of the Gospel'. In the doing, we opened our imagination onto paths never walked upon.

Altogether, this meet was truly refreshing indeed, restoring our faith in the Papacy and revitalizing our mission in spreading the Joy of the Gospel, not just as Christians but as humble human beings.
