Up The Youth

Today, I helped out with my local church youth group. It was the second meeting in the last few months; we are trying to get it going. Today, I was nervous. I had to prepare a few icebreakers and a discussion on a Nooma DVD called Rhythm. I was unsure if it would all come together. I was late. That was OK. We all said hi. We were 13 souls. We shared some naff ice-breakers, good times and pizza. We chatted about the DVD – about who we think God is, about what we think He’s like, about how we could possibly have a relationship with Him. I was reminded that we were all real people with faith and flaws and hopes and hitches in life. I hope that we will get together again soon.

God is good; even when we forget it and don’t get it, anyway.
