So last night we had several of the students in our youth group over. We didn't really do anything, just kind of hung out and talked. We watched the US v. Brasil U-20 Soccer game in the background. I love doing stuff like that, though.
It amazes me because the conversation will always turn spiritual. Students greatly desire to talk about stuff that matters, but they don't really care to talk about it unless you really show that you are willing to hear them first. Be available. Listen. Care. We so quickly want to jump to the life-changing cathartic moment and skip the steps we have to take to get there.
I love the journey. JM
