So youth pastoring a group of teenagers is challenging at its worst and hilarious most of the time.  We meet once a week on Thursdays.  Tonight was one of those hilariously challenging nights.

I talked about the importance of applying Christ to your life, that it’s not just enough to know about God or know of him but to have a serious relationship with him.  On in which you consider your Father when going about your day to day lives.  I used the example of nutrition.  Basically we all know we need food, we can look at food, hold food, even rub food on our arms(I was using the example of a dinner roll) but that food only nourishes you one way, which is to eat it.  I read the scripture about the last supper.  Jesus speaks about the bread, He took the bread, broke the bread, said this is my body, take it and eat.  Just like with Him you take all of Him and know that He’s working in you.  He cares about what we care about.  He actually wants me to be successful.

We’re also working on a dance for the Christmas program.  I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day – Casting Crowns. This was our first time practicing so there’s a lot of flubs and figuring stuff out but they’ll do a great job, I’m sure.
