"How to Talk Christianese"
So proud to see that our area youth groups can come together to pray around their schools flagpole and not be ashamed of what their friends think. It’s also nice to see that our area High School’s news site was willing to write a story about this (Click title to read the story). One of our former youth group members suggested this as a possible story for publication, but there wasn’t enough hype for it to follow through (or something like that).

"Don’t Let It Change You."
A couple weeks ago, an old man from our church was telling a story from when he was first going into the army. A friend of his told him, “Don’t let it change you.” He said this because, at the time, the army was somewhat infamous for a few activities. (I’m sorry I can’t specifically explain the scenario in this post, too much has happened between hearing this story and me writing this post.) He then applied this same concept to our senior youth group members who have recently went off to be at college. The point is, while you guys (class of 2013 youth group members) are college, don’t let college change you. Colleges can sometimes be infamous for their crazy parties involving many open opportunities for bad decisions to be made. If you are attending one of those types of colleges, remember what you’ve learned at church, remember what you’ve learned in youth group, and remember that you are a christian. Don’t let the temptations of these many bad opportunities get to you, and don’t let college change who you’ve grown up to be. Also remember to “keep calm and trust God.”
