From Tuesday evening through Wednesday afternoon, my website went down. I know you folks have been worried sick that the Russians got to me. Good news: I’m okay, and it appears we fixed the problem. The eagle will fly again.
Last night, we had a youth ministry volunteer vision dinner. I was really worried about it–would anybody show up, and if they did, would it even be worth it?
We ended up having a great turnout and a great time, and we closed the evening by having folks circle up in small groups and pray for our students and our church. I took the photo above while folks were praying.
I’ve been worried about taking over the leadership of our youth ministry this fall.
- Is the additional responsibility going to drive me into the ground? Will I be able to keep up my energy? Will this commitment hurt my family?
- Will anyone step up to help? Are we going to get buy-in from parents?
- Will any families show up at our kickoff? Will any students show up after that?
- Will any of this even work?
Seeing all those folks praying last night was a good reminder:
Everything is going to be all right. We are so blessed.
