Let the Blogging Resume!
The end of summer is bittersweet as a youth pastor. One the one hand I am excited about returning to a measured schedule, where I know for the most part how my days will go and how much sleep I will get! On the other hand, my inner teenage soul will miss the measured chaos bouncing from one event to the next, expectant to see how the Lord will move next.
And what a summer it was: Monday Lunches with students all over the city, Wednesday Night Bible study that became a seminary class for teens, 12 hour bus ride to and from camp, Camp itself, Missions Week, Poverty Simulation, Service Projects, Youth Week, and a Back to School Event…whew!
But alas, students are back in school and busy with homework, sports, and dozens of other extracurricular activities. The youth area now seems big, cold, empty, and quiet. How am I supposed to get anything done?
But the end of summer also marks a time of refreshment for youth workers. It’s a time to read, write, dream, listen for His voice, ask for His direction, and petition His presence. All things that are too hurriedly done during the busy summer months.
For me its a chance to get back to blogging. A chance to share with you my passion to see students know, love, and worship Jesus. A chance to collaborate with other youth workers who are just as crazy as I am. So let’s chat, let’s dream, let’s cast vision, let’s come together and see lives changed. To Him be the glory…let’s go!
