Ecumenical Ministry

29 03 2009

So I’m going to Mass tomorrow. Growing up in a Baptist church, I didn’t have much exposure to the Catholic Church.

Now that I work with Catholic and Protestant kids… I try to get to Mass once a month.

I’m going tomorrow.

There is something beautiful about Mass. I kinda feel like I got ripped off growing up without the beauty of liturgy. Glad I can connect with it now!


I was 15 once

One of my guys was hurting tonight… you know, girl problems. I almost just blew him off, told him to suck it up, and quit ruining my program.

Then I remembered- I was 15 once, and in love, and had my heart broken, too!

Thank you, Lord, for giving me the insight to shut my mouth, listen, and tell him that I care and understand where he’s at.

Students are busy these days. I almost feel like I need to set appointments up a week ahead of time to have lunch with a kid.

Was I this busy in High School? I know I played sports, was involved in Youth Group, hung out with friends. But if my Youth Pastor called and wanted to have lunch… I dropped everything and went.

I don’t think it’s me. I think kids are busy. Too busy. And the stuff they are busy with is really not important when it comes to what really matters.

How do I help them slow down?

My new favorite hang out is a little coffee shop run by one of the local churches. The coffee is good but cheap, they have free WiFi, and best of all, no one knows me. It has basically become my new “morning office.”

Even if we had a St*rbucks with seating, I think it would be replaced right now.

Free. WiFi.

Why do I suck at Blogging?

Because I’m lazy, that’s why.

I wish I had better discipline to put my thoughts down here every day. But as they say… “you can wish in one hand, and p**p in the other, and see which fills up first.”

I don’t know what that means, but I like it!
