On most Wednesday evenings you will find me (Trisha) at church leading a small group of high school girls for our student ministry. It’s an absolute privilege to serve along side some of the best youth pastors a parent could ask for. They’re not afraid to tackle the toughest and often uncomfortable and awkward topics our students are facing. As a mom of two teenage boys I thank God often for each of them!
Our student ministry is currently in a series entitled “YOLO”. You will find #Yolo often in social media and if your anything like me I had to ask one of my students to explain to me what YOLO means. We have used it to talk about living out the life God has called each of us to. Our students aren’t always willing to share their thoughts about certain topics but this past Wednesday we watched a video that had even our middle school boys dialed in and in tears.
This video ignited tender moments for many of our small groups as we unpacked what our eyes, heart and mind just watched. Who would have known that the story of a married couple would break open the sacred places of our students’ hearts that most of us as leaders had yet been given access to until that night.
Today, you have the opportunity to see beyond your past, your choices or your circumstances and experience the extraordinary presence of Christ that comes through deep unconditional love.
