So here is the second instalment of what happened on the weekend. I will keep it brief. Three reasons why I liked the weekend away. […]
- Three gospel talks were given, and the kids were given three sessions after they had heard each talk to discuss and ask questions of the leaders. This was brilliant. The responses were so encouraging that I am thankful to be a youth worker. What a privilege.
- It was good to focus on why we were bothering with a weekend away. Romans 8 tells us that there is no condemnation for those in Christ Jesus. We desperately want this to be the story of all the young people in the youth group and the weekend was a great opportunity to show Gods grace and mercy. The seed continued to be sown, so now we pray that it has fallen on good soil.
- Two or three kids really engaged all weekend with the idea of knowing God. They were asking questions even when they weren’t in discussion groups or listening to a talk. They were really thinking about things rather than just letting it pass them over.
Now I look forward to building on this weekend, and looking forward to seeing the kids again this week. I can honestly say that the weekend just gone was a very positive and encouraging time.
Over and out.
