A New Adventure

In my role as "Facilitator for Children and Youth Christian Formation" ( not a moniker I chose, by the way), I'll occasionally fill in for a Sunday School teacher who's out. Tomorrow, I'll be leading the 7th-10th graders.

I have a confession. I'm a little scared of teenagers. Not because I think they're thugs, or badly behaved, or mean people. I just have no concept of what goes on in teenagers' heads. People assume that since I'm one of the youngest adults in the congregation, I'll relate well to our youth. I'm not sure they know that it's just my body that's young. Inside, I was born 80 and am regressing.

Wish me luck. I'll let you know tomorrow how it went.

"So keep fightin' for freedom and justice, beloveds, but don't you forget to have fun doin' it. Lord, let your laughter ring forth. Be outrageous, ridicule the fraidy-cats, rejoice in all the oddities that freedom can produce. And when you get through kickin' ass and celebratin' the sheer joy of a good fight, be sure to tell those who come after how much fun it was."
